David, I still can’t believe you’re no longer with us…
Our relationship started about 12 years ago on a purely professional basis. Since then it has become so much more than that and you became someone I very much considered my friend. There are so many funny examples I could give or ‘David-isms’ but, I just wanted to actually share with you some deeper thoughts here.
I looked up to you and respected you. You made me laugh all the time and I was often proud of myself that I could actually keep up (sometimes) with your wit. Our regular lunches/dinners with Peter and Billie were always a highlight and I will miss these so much. They won’t be the same without you there but we owe it to you for them to continue.
I send my deepest condolences to your wife and three children, I can’t begin to imagine how they must feel without you here.
