    Holy cow. I used to e-mail with him a little bit. What a good guy and, once again, someone goes too soon. Damn.

    RIP, DP.

    This is really bad news. He was a good reporter and a good guy. He was friendly with with many Patriots fans.

    RIP Dan!

    I'm in shock, total shock. Dan was one of the first guys I met when learning at the score in 2005. We were both southcoast guys and loved to talk about the new bedford area. As I moved up at the score before the March 10th demise I covered games, did the murphys report and became friends out of the media with him. I needed a job after the score went off the air and took one at a Shaws that he went to at least 3 times a week. We'd talk sports and life all the time, the guy became a close friend. I saw him saturday at the store, he came in and we talked some baseball. Can't believe this, I've talked to a few other media guys who are shocked too.

    That's sad. Thoughts and prayers to the family.

    I always enjoyed his writing, and was pleased that a fellow New Bedfordite could do so well.

    RIP.

    Wow, I've IM'd him in the past myself.

    Very sad and very sudden. Very close to Alan Greenberg in age, too.

    Really sucks to hear he passed, my thoughts go to his family. I know a lot of people say that and never mean it, but when ever I think of this it always tends to cross my mind for a little at the least. RIP.
