Our dear friend, Capt. Danwin Purdy died today in south Florida. He will be forever missed in our hearts and remembered as a big part of our lives. Our arms reach out to his family and most especially his beautiful bride, Sherry.

O Captain! My Captain!

Your ship weather’d every rack,

The prize you sought is won,

The port is near, the bells I hear,

The people are exulting,

Your ship has sailed without those

who loved you so....never doubt.

They await you,

Rejoice in your coming, as

We are sorely saddened of your leaving.
