I agree, John.
Looks like it will be a beautiful day weather wise today and Monday. I'm glad for that and know that good weather is something families hope for when they are burying a loved one.

Thank you Ian for the great summation and pics. I wore my black MOT Tee shirt as I felt it was appropriate.As I stood gazing at Dan there were hands on my shoulders from behind.It was Dan's mother who had seen the large cling logo on the back of my shirt and she bellowed out " The MINIs are here!" Hugs for all , tears by most.I know she was very grateful for our appearance.Later outside we were again approached by Dan's employer who regailed us with work related stories of Dan. A rare baker sighting even if he WAS driving a brandy new Honda Civic SI. Great food at KC's later and a rather somber ride home. Jock

a guy I'd never met before whose name escapes me, thin with beard, black MINI/white stripes???(anyone?)
Jared was his name. Seemed to know baker. I think that's everyone. It took us about three hours to get in and out of KC's but I enjoyed it. It was nice seeing everyone and I'm sure Dan appreciated the turn-out in his honor. I barely knew him, but it was impossible to miss his exuberance.

Damn!

More sad news. Wish I could have been there, but today this was part of my "just back from vacation catch-up" - again. Better stop leaving town, at this rate...

I've always introduced myself as "The Other Dan", and of course everyone knew exactly who I was talking about. Our little community has lost another one of its truest enthusiasts - Let's hope that a little of his spirit will stay with all of us.

Have to stand corrected...The woody may be up for sale. The family really needs some time to sort things out.

Good news is that Dan's family will be be bringing Dan's GOMINI to Mt. Washington and they'll all be there again.

It was a tearful service today, but in the end all of Dan's family was there for us in the same way he would have been.

Thanks to everyone who could be there in person and to everyone who, like me, was there in spirit. Dan loved our community and we loved him.
