    I am so sad that you have to feel the sorrow that Dana's passing has brought you. When we visited Colchester I didn't spend much time around Dana wbecause of our age differences but I do remember him being a sweet little boy. So many years have passed but it's still that sweet little cousin I'll remember. God bless you.

    Dana was such a kind, honest, friendly guy.   Will admit, one of my favorite cousins, as we always had good conversations.  He loved his family and his face lit up anytime he talked about them.  Jodi, Jesse, Ryne and Danielle and families, cherish your memories.  Will continued to pray for you all during this sad time.

    Betty Nelson told our church on Sunday of the unexpected loss of this fine man.  Most of us didn't know him but we sympathize with Betty and the rest of the family; we regret the time lost that he will not have with his loved family.

    Heartfelt sympathy to Dana's family. Our prayers are with each of you doing this difficult time. Our family will always remember our time spent with you when we vacationed from Oregon. We will be praying for Dana's siblings and hopefully you know we are sharing your pain. We are saddened by such a loss. Jo Nelson Corner

    I had not seen Dana since the mid-80s but I have wonderful memories of him from visits to Colchester and staying with his family, as well as their visit to see us in the late 70's.  I remember sitting around by the railroad tracks across from Grandma's just talking.  So many of my Colchester memories include Dana.  I am so sorry that you will all have him missing from your lives.  He will be remembered more than I think he would have believed.  My prayers have been and continue to be with you all.
