Dear Gary, Chris and Sammy,
You are in my thoughts.
I had the nicest conversation with Dana when we ran in to each other while shopping not to long ago. She was as warm as always and we exchanged all the things our kids are doing. Shared some memories too , of course.
I am so sad for your loss.
Dana was a true gem.

I have such fond memories of Dana. Even after all these years, I canstill hear her voice, see her smile and remember many warm and wonderful conversations. I am so glad that I knew her.
I send my love to all of you and wish you strength and peace in the coming days.

Dear Gary, Chris, and Sammy, We were so saddened to learn that Dana has left us, much too soon and after a long, hard-fought battle. Memories with her begin even before our kids were fellow students at MPH, back when summers were spent at Drumlins. Dana and I met waiting poolside during morning swim lessons and immediately hit it off. She was so friendly and kind, a big influence on my decision to enroll our girls in a new school. Over the years we spent time together regularly, with and without kids, always enjoying each other's company, and then sadly, we lost touch during the empty-nest years. I was thrilled to see you and Dana out together a few weeks before she passed, Gary. It was like time had never gone by and she and I made a loose plan to get together again soon to catch up. Now that will never happen but I am grateful beyond measure to have had that last encounter and one last hug. Please know that we are here and if there is anything at all that you want or need, don't hesitate to reach out. We've always cared about the Rodziewicz family and that will always be! With love, Kathy, Mark, Leah, and Cara
