AUGUSTA, GA (WRDW/WAGT) -- We have some sad news to share this evening about a man featured on the CBS Evening News late last year.

Dan Peterson, who struck up quite the unlikely friendship with little Norah Wood of Augusta, passed away on on Monday, Feb. 10, Norah's mother said in a Facebook post.

"Unsurprisingly, the timing was just as extraordinary and remarkable as Norah and Mr. Dan's initial meeting," Tara Wood wrote. "We'd spent the morning with him just the day before. He was in good spirits, joyful, and happy. He had a belly full of pancakes and a heart full of love."

Friends- I’m saddened to share with you the passing of our dear Mr. Dan on Monday, February 10, 2020. Unsurprisingly,...

Rest in peace, Mr. Dan.
