"I really believe that my direction in life was shaped in collage. Not so much my job but the people I hung around. Dane was definitely a positive side kick and a person that would help you out of any situation. Even helped me working pots and pans for Jeff.He was my best man in my wedding. My stability during a very tuff time for me. Heck of a friend!!! "

"Another moment was when I married my wife Cathy. Dane driving us around town in my convertible car with tons of shaving cream all over it. When we first took off my new wife was plastered in shaving cream. Dane had this small laugh that he muffled a little. Never forget!"

"One of favorite memory was riding Danes 350 motorcycle back from home to BallState. It was a whopping 20 degrees outside. Dane driving and we had no coats. Danes wind breaker the only protection from the weather. Needless to say , I did a lot of hugging that trip back. We froze!!!"
