Dan fulfilled countless dreams with his initiative. I know my experience in this hobby has been greatly and positively impacted by Dan and his efforts.
I too remember when it was Brick Bay and how happy I was by the money I could save. It allowed my hobby to continue and grow and could not to this day imagine or quantify how limited my LEGO collection would be now. Yet, it would be wrong just to only focus on the monitary aspect. By reading the previous comments and just taking a moment to reflect on how many lives Dan affected over the years, one could only hope to be so successful in one's life as he did.
I did not have the benefit of knowing Dan, but I sure wish I did. I guess I just took it for granted that, in just a few clicks, I could have exactly the right bricks and figures on their way from all over the world, whether from Ohio, Hong Kong, or Norway. Wow, he will be missed.
