Condolence: Although I had not been in touch with my cousin Dan in several years, and had not seen him since my mother's funeral, I see now how much I'd missed in not knowing him better.
One of my fondest memories of Dan was from when I was a child and Dan took us younger cousins out for ice cream while we were visiting at my aunt Marie. Dan would always pay attention to us, where most his age would not have been bothered. I see now he continued in this vein for his entire life.
Condolence From: Dean Swomley (Chair, Greater Cincinnati SCORE)
Condolence: It is with great sadness that we at Greater Cincinnati SCORE say goodbye to our friend and colleague Dan Herche. As a volunteer for SCORE, Dan cheerfully gave many people the help they needed to improve their lives, the lives of their loved ones, and our community. Our thanks go out to Christine the family for sharing him with us for a time, and now we pray for you to find strength and comfort.
Condolence: Chris and Christine: There are no words that can ease your grief but perhaps a few memories of the big loud loving guy we knew as Dan. I met Dan and Glenda at the Ronald McDonald House as they passionately raised money and volunteered for a cause so close to their heart in honor of your sister. As fate has it, Dan and I became work buddies at CG&E a few years later. Dan spent many hours in my office mourning the loss of your mother, until one day, after grief group, he pounced in there like he just won a horse race. That was the day he met you, Christine. From that day forward, the almost daily visits were joyful as I watched his love for you grow. Although his days were cut way too short, I'm so happy you both had a 2nd chance at love. Dan lived big and loved big and Chris and Christine, you were both at the center of that love. My prayers are with both of you and the entire family. May the many memories you have of Dan and the way he lived life sustain you and bring you peace in your grief.
