Hello, my name is Sheila Zelaya, first cousin of Arthur Grayzel. I am in the midst of planning a family reunion and came across this obituary. I am so very sorry to learn of this tragedy. Dave, I'm sure was named after his great-grandfather David. He was an astonishingly, gifted, talented and special young man.. It would have been an honor to have met him. Please, if you have the time, send me Arthur's e-mail. I want to reconnect with my family. I remember when Jonathan was born. All my love. Sheila Zelaya [email protected]

David and I have crossed paths during my 8th grade year at touchstone community school. It's funny how knowing someone for one year can have such an impact on your life. Not a single day goes by where I'm not reminded of Dave. We used to hang out drawing together and I always loved listening to his perspective on life and his outrageous sence of humor. The work that he created was incredible and I always loved being able to catch up and see what he was up to.
I've always admired Dave because when I met him he was a lot of the things I strived to be as a person. Thoughtful, creative, incredibly smart, and had an immense amount of self awareness. I remember him comming into a room yelling have no fear Barbarous Strican is here.

Back in 2016 I had the chance to see Dave once again when he went to Brown's summer program for, (I believe), creative writing. It's funny to say I was so exited to see him that I cried. But that's just the kind of man Dave is. He is someone who can brighten up a room with his witty commentaries and actions.

I unfortunately heard about Dave's passing right after his funeral while I was in Boston attending college. I decided to set out into Boston and go to this beautiful church near my school called Basilica Shrine of Our Lady of Perpetual Help. Over there I lit a candle for Dave. I find what's beautiful is that in the distance, every six o' clock in the afternoon a church in the distance will play let there be peace on earth.

It might seem rather odd that I'm sending this so late in the year, however, I caught myself thinking about him today. Because if this I thought it was appropriate to share my condolences once again to the Grayzel family. Dave will forever live in our hearts and will never fail to serve as an inspiration for all of the incredible things he has done.

Julia, Jon and Conor,
I am sending light and love to you. The last time I saw David he was a toddler visiting my house in RI. I am reading about the bright, talented, kind and caring young man he grew into, and I am weeping for this loss. Please know many people are holding your family in their thoughts and sending love to you all.
