Condolence: I read the news today.

I don't know if it's appropriate for me to send you an email or not but I just felt like I should.

I read today about the discoveries that were made and I wanted to send a note that I hope this helps put some closure to the long and agonizing pain that you have endured.

I read with great interest the news of your son and I followed your regular blogs. Always hoping and praying that Daniel would be found.

So many times I wished I could help out in a search or in some other way. The numbers of people that assisted you over the years is a testament to the one common goal of finding your son.

I first learned about Daniel's disappearance in the spring of 2012 at a canoeing event in Caledonia.

Well, I don't know what else to say except that I'm glad he was found and I hope you are able to fit the final puzzle pieces together to help make sense of everything.

My prayers remain with you.

Condolence: Maureen and Don:
Miigwech for this update….I’m glad you and Don have finally got an answer to Daniel’s whereabouts. The journey of uncertainty is at least over. I’m sure that Daniel’s spirit is living free and happy in Temagami where Daniel obviously felt free and happy.

Condolence: I am so sorry for your loss my thoughts are with you and Daniel at this time. I hope you and the people that meant so much to Daniel finally have some closure in what I am sure has been the hardest thing to have to have dealt with. Though I didn't know Daniel his story has touched me and I had been thinking about him for several days and wanted to offer my condolences.

Condolence From: Sandy and Terry Visentin
Condolence: Hi Moe and Donny:
Terry and I heard the news that Daniel was found when we were in Anchorage, on our way home. Just like I could never really imagine what you have felt over the last few years, I can't begin to imagine the barrage of emotions you must have gone through and are continuing to go through.

I know I felt both extreme sadness and relief at the same time - something I couldn't have believed was possible before I experienced it. I figure if I felt this just thinking of that cute boy with devil in his eyes; I can only guess that your feelings are just as complex and conflicted.

I so wish we could be with you now and on Sunday. Please know that you remain and will continue to be in our hearts any prayers.

May the love and support of God and all those around you sustain you as you move forward knowing Dan is at peace. (I figure he and Brent are causing a ruckus in Heaven - it's like they have been doing it for years, we just now found out about it.
Sandy and Terry

Condolence From: Carolyn Johnson-Trotter
Condolence: Dear Maureen and Don: I just read on Facebook about finding Daniel in a bed of pine needles - sounds like a peaceful resting place. I am glad that your search is over and you can finally have closure - it is sad that that the ending was so tragic, but It is nice that you found him before his birthday.

If there is anything that I can do, please let me know. My thoughts and prayers are with both of you. When are you having the celebrating of his life?

Take care and continue to be strong. God bless you and give you peace.

Love, Carolyn

Condolence: Maureen & Don: I am not sure what to say. I feel for both of you. But now you finally get closure. Painful as it is to loose a child, at least now Daniel is not lost. He's coming home. May he rest in peace now. My thoughts and prayers go out to your family. Big hugs as well. Daniel was found on the day that we were have a Celebration of Life for my son Barry. Maybe Barry helped to find him for you. Now you can start to heal.
Lots of love, Ruth
