Dear Auburn Community: My wife Jeanne, daughter Michelle and I would like to thank our wonderful community for the tremendous outpouring of love and support after the devastating loss of our son Christopher Dann in a motor vehicle accident Dec. 29. We feel the deepest sorrow and sympathy for the family of the other driver killed, Ms. Jessica Faber, and the young man injured, Gregory Wessels. We settled in Auburn 23 years ago looking for a great place to live and raise a family, and we have never regretted it. Chapel of the Hills staff were incredible in their comforting and caring attitude. Thanks to Pastor Schindler for a wonderful eulogy. Pioneer Methodist Church was so very kind to have our reception in their multipurpose room. Thank you to the Quality Inn for the discounted rooms for his Long Beach friends who traveled north for the service. Thanks to the Auburn Journal for their Online Guest Book. Thanks to Rick’s mom’s coworkers from the Placer County Assessors Office for setting up the lovely reception. We cannot possibly convey how comforting it was to see well over 300 people at Chris’ funeral, over 100 of whom had to wait outside, but did so. Most of all, thanks to Chris’, and our wonderful friends, family and coworkers who did everything they could to comfort us in our deep despair. We love all of you, and feel so incredibly fortunate to live in a community like Auburn. Bless you all. Rick, Jeanne and Michelle Dann, Auburn
