    Dear Charles, Marlene, and family, I am so sad to hear this news. I remember taking a sweet little girl to tap, jazz, and ballet lessons. My sincere sympathy and prayers are with you all.

    We grieve with this great family. Not only was Dana the magnificent person she is shown to be in the Memorial Video, but to my certainty, she was also a woman perhaps as smart as her Dad, which would be a great feat. Dana Venus (Hoover) worked on numerous cases I handled as a lawyer over the past 45 years. She never made an error. That, of course, is not our loss. Our loss is that we no longer have this wonderful person to help us, at least for now, but maybe forever!

    Charles, Marlene and family, Sharon and I were shocked and saddened to learn about Dana’s passing. We will continue to have all of you in our thoughts and prayers. We, too, have fond memories of Dana.
