A long time ago, Dan was my best friend. I am sad to say I always thought there would be time for us to get back in touch. Though I hadn't seen him in some time, he was often in my thoughts.
My condolences to his loved ones. He was so talented, creative, and had a special, witty outlook on life that will be missed.
