Arriving in Santa Barbara, Tom and I grabbed a cab to the church at 935
San Andreas St. Once we arrived, in bright sunlight, about 25 minutes
before the service, I took a few photos of the beautiful church grounds.

Flowers in and around the Chapel set a nice mood
for Dan's Memorial Service.
The Chapel for the service. The screen later
was used to show tribute photos of Dan on a trip he had taken to Israel
with a group in attendance.
A nice lunch was provided after the service in
an areas to the side of the Chapel.
It was an excellent service, a nice tribute to Dan. About 50 people
were in attendance. Many relatives and members of his church attended,
and provided musical and verbal tributes to Dan. Representing the Fullerton
Train Meetup were Tom Anderson, Rick Schneider, Ken Ruben, and me.
Relatives of Dan mentioned that they were surprised at the good turnout
of Dan's friends.
Dan will be missed at the Meetup Meetings and Outings. Trains were a big
part of his 58 yr. life.
Dan traveled with the meetup group, by train, to the Depot Inn and Suites
in La Plata,
