    Dan was always a gentleman and kind soul. I lived in the caretakers house at St Rose Cemetery and after his father passed away he would meet his mother there to spend time at his grave side. Loved his family tremendously. God Speed and prayers to the entire Brennan family.

    May the road rise up to meet you.
    May the wind be always at your back.
    May the sun shine warm upon your face;
    the rains fall soft upon your fields
    and until we meet again,
    may God hold you in the palm of his hand.

    So sorry for your loss.

    Again, Sue and family, so terribly sorry about Dan’s passing. I watched the beautiful tribute video, what an awesome adventurous alive man that loved and lived life. He is still alive but in the presence of Jesus right now. God bless you and your entire family, children, parents, his family, all loved ones who knew Dan. God loves you all. I’ve been praying for you.
