Dear Pete and Cheri,
I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful son, Dan. I can't think of a better way to honor Dan's life than to join so many others in supporting your tribute fund for the DBSA. I have a brother with bipolar and so appreciate your generous choice in choosing this organization. Dan will live on in spirit within your family and those whose heart he touched. My prayers are with you.
Ann Zeiler (and Bill)

I was stunned to hear about Dan's passing. I remember him as a sweet kid who did not have a mean bone in his body. As an advocate for mental illness, this pains me and all I can say is he will be missed and bless you for raising awareness about mental health initiatives. I know my brother is shaken and sends his best.

Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know that are happy.You don't get over it, you just get through it. Your don't get by it, because you can't get around it. It doesn't 'get better'; it just gets different. Everyday... Grief puts on a new face...We miss you and love you Dan, you will always be in our hearts!
R.I.P my friend!

Knowing that Dan is safe with God and feeling it are two different things, I know. I pray that somehow God will be present with you in your journey through this darkness. The Order and indeed the whole Conference were and are lifting you in prayer.
