So sorry that we lost contact with you these past few years and am thankful that through Facebook Messenger, Lillian was able to get in touch with us. We, of course, have fond memories of our last meeting with you in 2005 when we visited you in London, during a trip to Toronto and other Canadian cities. Dan was a very dear friend and Nora has fond memories of working as his assistant at CIBC in New York. Truly a great boss--and friend! We surely miss Dan and pray for his eternal peace. God bless you ...we will stay in touch, Roly and Nora
