Two summers ago, I had the great fortune to study spoken Latin with David at a week long workshop. He was the first person I met, and I will forever remember his warm and gracious smile and ability to make a person feel at home and welcomed within minutes. Over the course of the week, I learned much from his gifted teaching methods; shared many home cooked meals and enjoyed many thoughtful and engaging conversations. We have lost a wonderful man and a true educator. Ave atque vale.
