Dan had a rare genetic disease/condition that was called Prader Willie syndrom. I met him when we were about four years old. He was overweight then and it just progressed from there. The disease has many different factors to them and one of them keeps a person from knowing when they are full and affects impulse control. We ended up in first grade together and through elementary school his mom always had a lock on the refrigerator as well as safeguards on the cabinets. I did not learn of his disease until we were in fifth grade. It was also then that our entire class learned that it was fatal and left many of the sufferers inable to have children. It was then that I decided my first born child would be named Daniel or Danielle. We kept in touch and in the years before he passed we got really close again. He died quietly the morning of December 1, 2002. Thankfully he got to see all of his god daughter and namesake's firsts; sadly many of those were his last.

Thank you for all of your kind notes.

That's really great that you got to honor your friend that way... it's nice that every time you log on to Webkinz World you'll have something there to remember Dan by.

I just have to ask- how the heck did the Cocoa Dinosaur remind you of your friend?

I have to say I'm not exactly sure. It looks big and adorable and that was my first impression of Dan (I have to note here we did get married/engaged in preschool... it was the talk of the school). I also am reminded of all of the work with Dinosaurs we did when we were in second grade and that was a really magical year for both of us.
