    Dana, in Arabic, means “the most perfectly sized, valuable, and beautiful Pearl”
    God has re-embraced his 72-year gift of his gemstone
    Her radiance shone
    Though no longer shown
    She left you not alone
    Unfurl your Heart
    Look into its heart
    You’ll find you’re not apart
    For there awaits your Pearl

  2. Dear Massey Family,

    The world lost a wonderful woman. She was so much fun to be around and I was fortunate to have her as my boss when I worked at MCC. I will never forget her smile and laughter. I always loved when she would being her beloved Weimaraners to work with her and we would take breaks to walk them. I still have the silver mustang pin she gave me for Christmas all those 24 years ago. She always talked about her husband Billy and her eyes just sparkled, just like they did when she talked about her children. Dana, you will be horribly missed by your family and all of the wonderful worldly friends you have made on your adventures. Love to Mr. Massey, Grady, and family. Prayers always.

  4. Carl and I want to extend our heartfelt condolences for your loss in the passing of Dana. She was an inspiration to us in the way she lived her life so fully and with such excellence. We will miss being able to pick up the phone to talk to her about our beloved Win’Weims. It was a privilege to have her as a friend, breeder, and mentor.
    The Massey family will be in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. May you feel God’s love, strength and peace which surpasses all understanding (Philippians 4:6-7).
    Denise and Carl Ludwig

  5. So very sad to hear this. She was an amazing woman and I am blessed to have been able to know her and her family. Prayers and ((hugs)) to the family.

  6. Dana will be missed by so very many. I knew her through the dog world and judging. She was a mentor to me who I admired dearly. God speed

  7. My condolence to the Massey family in your loss . I found Dana to be a very pleasant and wonderful, person, colleague, professor and mentor. I enjoyed knowing and working with her at MCC. She encouraged my niece to further her education in Real Estate and she is now a successful Realtor. Dana befriended those she met and impacted many lives. (She left a legacy of good works). May God continue to strengthen the family and give you His peace, which passes all understanding.
