I'm very sorry to hear about Dan. He was a wonderful influence in my life when I was a kid and he will always be a part of my happiest church camp memories. I cross-stitched a book marker for his Bible when I was about 9 years old; when he'd see me in the store, so many years later, he always made a point to tell me that he still had that book marker. <3  I send my sincere condolences to his family. <3
