Help Dan's Daughter pay for Funeral

With a heavy heart, I ask for your help. It is with inexplicable sadness that we come together for the sudden passing of Daniel Vail. There are very few words one can utter to define a soul as kind and gentle as that of Dan’s. Dan was a brilliant, talented man who didn’t let the hardships he was dealt get in the way of living his life.

Dan is survived by his two children, Amanda and Adam, and his girlfriend Wendy, whom he adored with every ounce of his being. No family should have to carry such a burden alone. 

We are reaching out to the community for donations to help offset Dan’s funeral expenses, and to help his children and girlfriend offset some of the financial strain they will face during this devastating time. Every little bit counts!

With great sincerity we truly thank each and everyone of you from the bottom of our hearts. 

Dan will be missed, dearly.
