"No matter where life takes you, FAITH takes you further." Dan always said "I have MS, but MS does not have me." He faced adversity and lived with physical limitations, but remained steadfast in his faith through it all.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the National MS Society, 950 East Paces Ferry Road, Suite 820, Atlanta, GA 30326.

"But those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they will mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint."
~Isaiah 40:31
