I'm glad to see that

I'm glad to see that everyone felt the same way as my family and I did. He was a part of my family's life, whether he knew or not. I knew a little bit about his life from the conversations I had with him. He was an educated man who was homeless because he wanted to be- the way we see it he wasn't homeless-Ogden was his home. You never saw him holding a sign or trying to get a hand out from anyone. He was funny, whitty and smart. All he ever wanted from anyone was to have a good conversation and be your friend. Yes, he liked a cold beer (like many of us) but he was NOT a drunk. You never saw him publicly intoxicated or slurring his words. People think that just because he was homeless that he was a drunk, not Dane. It's funny that so many kids thought he was Santa, we thought is was just a trick we used with our son to keep him straight. It will not be the same not seeing him around, and not being able to hear his soft gentle chuckle after he said something funny. Dane, you are loved and will truly be missed by the whole community. I hope the family sees these comments and knows that they are not the only ones who are grieving!! R.I.P Dane Hobbs Your friend
