Van and I went all through elementary & high school together. He was Always so kind. He had a very sweet and humble manner about him. I last seen him at his fathers funeral and he had not changed at all. He & Dan were always a good friend to me. May God comfort you family with wonderful memories. I plan to see Van again on the other side where well have endless ages to catch up.
