As anyone that has been a part of this community for an extended period of time already knows, Dan in Lafayette has been my right hand man for over 20 years here. To me, he is not only a good friend, but a treasure..

Dan lost his long time wife and soul mate (Melinda) today. She suffered a massive stroke last Tuesday and unfortunately succumbed and passed away early this morning in Lafayette.

Melinda was a kind soul and a huge Saints fan, and Dan and Melinda were inseparable. You would often spot them together at Saints games, Training camps, as well as the regular SR gatherings and functions that we used to have (which we need to start doing again) sporting their Obidan and Obiwife jerseys. Melinda will be sorely missed.

My heart goes out to Dan for his loss. I just want to make sure that Dan knows that we are here for the old curmudgeon (who is actually a big teddy bear) during his time of grief and mourning.

Dan has been undergoing testing for a mysterious, as yet to be identified illness himself of late, and I am concerned about him.

I know that Dan has a lot of friends here, and he will be reading this thread when time allows.

Dan! If you need anything at all, do not hesitate to ask.

Dan, we are all so sorry. I’ve never met you in person, and someone is cutting onions on your behalf. You have meant so much to me and this entire community of wonderful people that make up the greatest fan site on the “interwebs”. God bless you brother, and may she find peace, and in her peace, may you find solace.

I'm very sorry for your loss, Dan. I have never met you, but it is clear you have made a tremendous impact on this community, and I encourage you to rely on your friends for support during this time of need.

Dan, so sorry for your loss. Please remember the good times and to spend time with family and friends as they need you like you need them. I cannot imagine what you are going through as I have been married for almost 30 years and cannot imagine that kind of loss. My prayers are with you and your family.
