David was our friend and fellow traveler through the universe who shared with us his passion for science, music and cooking. We extend our deepest condolences to his family and friends. We grieve with you.

Though we share this humble path, alone

How fragile is the heart

Oh give these clay feet wings to fly

To touch the face of the stars

Breathe life into this feeble heart

Lift this mortal veil of fear

Take these crumbled hopes, etched with tears

We’ll rise above these earthly cares

Cast your eyes on the ocean

Cast your soul to the sea

When the dark night seems endless

Please remember me…

May we all find Peace. Blessed Be.

    to see what’s going on.  

    I feel so sad to see that this gentle man, David, has chosen to go on into another realm.  I  read some of his pieces  here and there, over time. Whatever he wrote about, it was written with such passion and thoroughness  as to be unbelievable.  I really think he was a genius, and a most feeling one. He was exemplary!  We  can all learn from such an individual as David!  This is so very sad!
