I find this to be a picture a little bit behind the scenes... so I want to share it. I am not a big writer, and German my mother language... still I want to say somenthing.
...I have decided to do/ live some of the things I most liked of you, Dan. I am not brave enough for your way of dressing, but I am for looking at every person as awesome- and for living my dreams.
I always thought we would meet again... you were so alive, and then you left! Live is precious, and the biggest gift you are leaving me right now is that your memory reminds me to be in the present, alive, and cherish everyone, and life. Thank you for spending some of your time with me! And to do some things people out of the "normal" range...
Nick said you would want us to celebrate. So, I do cry, but I also feel love, thankfulness, and hopefully soon joy.
