Dan and his family from church
in McPherson from the time I was

thought the best of him. I
whisper a prayer for his family

I have been thinking of you Martha, Tammy and Tim and the rest of the family. Dan was very special to me. He will be missed. I send my love to all of you. I was telling my Son-in-law of the wonderful man Dan always has been and we enjoyed a laugh as I told him stories of Dan. We all loved him dearly.

I will dearly miss "Daddy Musselman". I adopted him as my "Daddy", because Tammy and I were so close. I remember staying the night with Tammy many times, while "Mom Musselman" would be working, he would always take us where we needed to go! After He was Retired!
