Darlene, we are so, so sorry for your loss. We've lost a good one that DanO. I'm so sad to learn of this news, but I'm glad to have known him - and you! We hope that you are doing ok and are grateful for the memories we made in Pittsburgh with the both of you. When I think of an "I can" person, he's the first one that comes to mind. From the EFI of Odyssey to the Guinness Book award, he was a trooper, and always a class act.
