    Harry, although I never had the opportunity to meet Dana in person, she and I were good Facebook friends. I appreciated and valued that friendship very much and felt that she and I had shared an “in person” friendship for many years….she was just that warm and kind in our FB friendship! I was both shocked and extremely sad when I read of her death. What a lovely lady she surely was, and the description of her in the obituary echoed my feelings of her. Please know that you and all the family will be in my prayers and thoughts now and in the days ahead.
