    Matthew, Dan’s son and Carol Johnson miss Dan everyday. We find comfort in knowing that he truly loved us and he knew we loved him. We also find comfort in knowing that he is at peace now. His last few years were met with disappointment and a longing to spend time in Georgia. God knew the heartache he was in and his longing to be with his first family. His memory has been etched in our hearts and his son, Matthew, is the image of his father. His first family–first wife and son–talked to Dan everyday and did not see him as often as we would have liked. Dan would make surprise visits to Georgia and we have very wonderful memories of those. Much of his early life was not mentioned but Dan has a vast loving extended family and close friends in Pittsburgh. Matthew is very sad that he was not a part of the decision making for his father’s memorial service but was ignored. We are happy that Dan was in our lives and that God took him home to remove him from the misery, heartache and neglect he experienced during the last few years of his life. We are glad that God had the final say and that Dan cannot be hurt anymore. We find comfort in that we both had a chance to talk to him before he was called home and tell him he was loved here on earth by us. We know that we will see him again.
    Matthew, son and Carol Johnson
