Mr. Dan was absolutely one of my MOST favorite people I have ever been honored and privileged to know! He always acted as if I was the exact person he wanted to see and talk to. I saw him last summer when I visited Ruston and it brought back many wonderful memories The O'Neal's and the O'Kelley's always had a special bond, one being the First Presbyterian Church. And my Daddy always loved to play golf with Mr. Dan. My heart and prayers are with Miss Jimmie...Jan and Dan...that the Lord will embrace them with comfort! I am sure that God is being entertained with one of Mr.Dan's wonderful jokes! What a dear and precious man!

A wonderful man who will be missed by many. I picture him and RP playing cards and shooting the bull. I loved Mr. Dan. May the God of Peace flood your lives with His incomprehensible peace.

An era came to an end on Friday when God called Dan home.Everyone has fond memories. I will miss most the raspy voice on Sunday morning saying "Sissy" as he greeted with a hug and and a peck on the cheek. May God be with the family as they adjust to life without him.

Oh, my heart is breaking. I loved Mr. Dan sooo much. He will be sorely missed. I would hear him way before I saw him, he had such a unique voice that carried, and he was such a cut-up. Sorry I couldn't attend his funeral, but my prayers are with you.
