His college friends will all miss our brother Dan Lagano, and I do because he saved my life. Please, Santo, let him know that being my mentor and friend saved me from a profession he was so good at and by watching him I knew I would fail. As you bury your son, know that he was a good man and gifted in his skills. I say this as as only one of his old friends.
