You are already being missed big time David. May you be at peace wherever you are. Got your recent email and replied, but now you are no longer here. I am so very sad, but honored to have been your friend. Bless your wonderful soul!!! Sending a big warm hug to Nancy.

David was part of the Touchtone Writers group, and part of a group dynamic that continues to reverberate today. We will miss his dry wit and gentle presence.

For me David W. Paul has been such a tower of strength at All Pilgrims Christian Church since I moved into the Seattle area late June 2008. I remember primarily viewing him from the perspective of the choir. He had his usual seat near the front and calmly sat there in a very gracious manner. His eyes would twinkle as he carefully listened to and encouraged whoever was speaking, preaching, singing, or playing instruments.
As I got to know more about David, I was all the more amazed. He was the collaborative writer for Craig Rennebohm's Souls in the Hands of a Tender God. What a very special gift that was for the rest of us. Then, when David started the partnership between the Imam Center in Kirkland and All Pilgrims in Seattle, I began to see in him, a person with whom I could share my journey into interfaith dialog. As I would see interfaith articles in airline magazines and in the Seattle Times or when I would hear something on the radio dealing with interfaith, I would forward the information to David. He would kindly send the information out to the All Pilgrims CC Interfaith Group. What a wonderful person to encounter during my journey to become ordained. He truly was walking in solidarity with me.

My heart hurts for his family and many, many friends at the loss of such a beautiful spirit. And yet I look forward to being with him again one day.

What is truly shocking is that this was so unexpected, since David always said that the men in his family live to a ripe old age. Thinking of David reminds me of this saying: "When I was young, I admired intelligence; when I became older, I valued kindness the most." David was both intelligent and kind. And I send a major tribute to Nancy, who stood by her man so lovingly.

David was a long-time dear friend. We began graduate school together in the fall of 1968 and exchanged notes and Christmas cards regularly over the years. David was smart, talented, and perceptive. Like the rest of you, I miss him.
