This past Monday, March 23, 2015 Richard "Dana" Bonney founder of DANEL CARTERS went peacefully to heaven with his family at his side. The family had a great day Sunday talking with him about our family memories. There were smiles, laughter, and tears during the day. He moved to Grand Haven for the sole purpose of starting our charter fishing business and sharing his passion of fishing with others. A natural progression, Dana and Rob became Captain's. Although he stopped running trips many years ago, he called Dana everyday while on a charter to check on him (and many of his mates will tell you that usually a fish would bite when he called) As the new season approaches, every day that Dana is out there, he will be there, right by my side. May he be at peace as he smiles down upon us.

Hello Matt - Very sorry for their loss. Please let Dana and family know we are thinking of them during these difficult times.

It always struck me reading the accounts of Jesus' life here that a fair number of His disciples were fishermen. At the beginning of His ministry he sought them out by the seashore and told them to cast their net on the other side of the boat. Which when they did, was promptly filled with fish.

Then at the end of His time here He found them there again and offered the same advice, to the same guys, with the same result.

Maybe it's wishful thinking on my part but I tend to believe there is a special place in God's heart and in heaven, for fishermen who believe.

May you and your family find peace.
