  2. Dan and I were married for over 10 years and we had the privilege of raising our daughter Natalie Shelton together, even staying as close as possible in our parenting after our divorce. We had many wonderful years and Dan will always be a part of my heart and soul. I’m so sorry he passed so young, but am grateful he is not in pain and suffering. I know he’s hanging with his Dad and enjoying some good baseball memories! God blessed a lot of people with Dan in their lives and there’s gotta be a huge hole for him in each heart that loved him.

  3. Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory. Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. — Psalm 73:23-26

  6. I have missed Dan for years and had believed
    that his smile and jokes would be around for
    many years to come. I never saw a frown on
    his face. He is missed. But the memories will
    always be close to my heart. Rest In Peace Dan.

  7. Even though we did not know Dan, we feel we know him through his daughter Natalie. She is one of the most wonderful daughter-in-law’s we could possibly ask far. I know he and Kim had a lot to do with that. Natalie, I know this is a very difficult time for you right now sweetheart. Just know that if you need anything we are here for you, anything at all. We love you and the family and praying that you have the comfort to get through this time of great sorrow. Love Dave & Lynne
