  1. I am so sorry for your loss. It was a pleasure to have Dan in our young peoples while Betty and I served the Ev. Cov. Church in Durban.. Also a pleasure to be a part of the Fullerton Family over the years.

  2. I treasure all the more the brief time I had with Dan at our 50th Class Reunion from Covenant Bible College this past August in Moorhead, Minnesota. It was a delight to observe the joyful conversations Dan was having with so many of his old classmates. He was deeply loved.

  3. Hi Dawn: I am so sorry to learn of your loss and my heart goes out to you and your family.
    With deepest sympathy, Ron Larson
