Dan and Keith ....I just learned that your dad passed away and wanted to express my sincere condolences. Dan, Ray Ralston and I were great friends when we were at UMass and afterward. Dan and Ray were ushers in my wedding.
We had many great times together. The last time I saw
Dan was at your mom's memorial service. I'm sorry to say ...as it often happens.. we just lost contact after that.
Fitz was a great guy who achieved quite a lot in his lifetime. And I know he was very proud of you. I just wanted to share with you that I also lost someone that was very important to me,
Take care....love .....walter silvia
