God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be, so He put His arms around you and whispered, "Come to me." With tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away, and though we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, a precious soul at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best. Dan passed away on Tuesday, September 11, 2018 at Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center at 10:30 p.m., at the age 87. He was a native of Fort Worth, spent his childhood in New Orleans and was a resident of Brusly. Dan was an Army Veteran who served as a Medic in the Korean War.
