Dan loved everyone he worked with equally and means the world to the rest of us. It showed every day he came in and he genuinely cared for every single one of us and he's truly missed. He made the slogan "when you're here, you're family" true for all that worked with him. Our deepest sympathy goes out to you, from Trey and friends from Olive Garden.
