Dan Vance passes away

A guest editorial by Colonel Davenport

Love him or hate him, Dan loved Davenport. He was a worker, loved the inner city and wanted Davenport to succeed. A Vietnam vet, disc jockey, elected official and small time newspaper man, the guy lived for a better America, a better Davenport.
As bloggers, political want to bee's, or the interested citizen; few are willing to step forward and serve. Dan was one guy that was willing to do so. I pray Davenporters realize his contributions and his desire for this great city to be better.
May the good Lord embrace the soul of Daniel Vance, and provide grace and comfort to his extended family.

Regular blogging will resume later today

Dan was a true friend to Davenport, most have disagreed with him a time or two, but he always stood firm for what he believed was best for this city that he loved. As a friend, a politician, and a citizen he will be sorely missed. My condolences and prayers to the family, and may he rest in peace...
