Dan always met you on a personal level. He welcomed you into his life, “come as you are.” Dan was the definition of generous. His reflective warm gaze would invite you to enjoy his brilliant mind, his gentle quiet heart, the curiosity of his adventurous nature and a smile that was healing for anyone broken.
