Judy Bates Parker
Hi Jim...It was nice to hear from you. I wanted to let you know that we have lost another family member. Our cousin, Paula Bates (Paul and Nancy's oldest child) passed away this past Sun. She had been ill for quite some time. No arrangements have been made yet. With us living so close, maybe we will eventually see each other. Hope we continue to keep in touch.

Leslie...I live in Peru now serving as a missionary and you came across my mind last week. I decided to search for you on the internet and discovered your recent loss. I am so sorry. I have been praying for you.... After all these years, I still hold such wonderful memories of our time together showing dogs, traveling, etc. Thank you for sharing in my life. I will continue to pray for you and I hope that you are doing well. I will never forget Dan's smile....it was contagious. Blessings to you and would love to keep in touch...Kim Holmes firstname.lastname@example.org
All of us that worked with Dan at the Cape remember his dedication to quality in everything he did. His efforts were a significant part of the valuable work being done out there. Military, scientific, or commercial, in every aspect of space, Dan brought accomplishments that helped build the world leadership we had at that time. He is missed. God Speed to the Family. s/s Sy Baker

I was so stunned yesterday to learn Dan had passed away. I was talking to my Mom and she saw it in the Oak Ridger newspaper. The last time I saw Dan was at Uncle Dick's funeral. My Mom, Geneva Bates, and my brothers, Benny and Gary Bates, send our love and prayers to family. May God be with you all. Please know we are thinking of you.
What I remember most about Dan, is his warm smile and easy laugh. I met Leslie and Dan when I started showing my siberian in Fla. Leslie and Dan were always so much fun to socialize with, after the shows. I pray for you Leslie, Danny and Oneta, and hope God wraps his loving arms around you during this time of sorrow. Dan, I know has already met angels and saints, sharing his stories and laughter. Colleen and Richard Harbison
Dan and Oneta,
Rosie and I would like to express our deep sorrow about the passing of your father. He had the right stuff as a pioneer engineer in the US space program. We are standing on his shoulders. I will pass along the news to other members of the Atlas Centaur team here and in Huntsville and Denver. Centaur is still flying and going strong! Stay strong in these difficult times - you can be proud of what your Dad accomplished and the kind person he was.
All the best - Rob and Rosie Mueller

Dearest Leslie and family,
I just saw the posting about Dan. I knew Dan and Leslie from showing Siberians in the 80's, and Leslie, my heart and love go out to you for your great loss. You and Dan have been in my thoughts during all these years. Please stay strong now, I cannot imagine the pain that Dan and you have been through. All of my love to you and your family.

One of my many fond memories...... I will never forget when I was too small to keep up with Dan while walking, I was 4 and he was 7. We lived on Sand Mountain in Higdon, Alabama with our MaMa and Papa Bates and were sent by MaMa down the road to the country store to exchange chicken eggs for flower or sugar or something like that. The road was dirt all the way to the store it had rained and there were big ruts. It was tough walking and I got tired on the walk back home. So, Dan hoisted me up on his back to carry me piggy back. A big truck was coming up behind us and stopped when he caught up to us, he asked Dan ..."Hey, do you want a ride he looks like he may be getting heavy." Dan said, No sir, "He ain't heavy he's my brother." We had been taught not to accept rides from anyone we didn't know. And that says everything about who and what my brother stood for and was to me. He was my helper and big brother protector. That was 70 years ago and I know there is a song with that phrase in it. After Dan refreshed my memory with that story several years ago we have together reflected back and wondered just who that truck driver was and laughed about it many times. I told Dan, see you should have been a song writer. That phrase was literally true for me because I was the recipient of the love and protection of my brother from a very early age. My condolences to Leslie, Dan and Oneta. And my appreciation for those who have entered comments. I already miss you something awful big brother see you later friend. Love Jim
My heartfelt condolences to the Haggard family for their tremendous loss. I will always treasure his memory and the fact that I could call him friend as well as coworker.I particularly admired his sense of humor, sharp mind, and his phenomenal memory. His willingness to help his coworkers understand the intricacies of the paperwork systems and his undiminished pleasant attitude made him liked by everyone. All who knew him will miss him. He was a special and unique individual. Best wishes to the entire Haggard family. Dick Andre
