David Davis suggested that I might someday become good enough to be a professional writer, and that's what I tried hard to do and it's what I am today; and I don't think it would ever have happened without his mentorship. He believed in me as a writer and cared for me as a person not just at Whitehaven High School (where he was the best teacher I ever had) but through all the years thereafter. He never stopped wanting to know how I was doing professionally and personally, and he came to confide me in as well--so that after a time I felt that I had been admitted to a place of intimacy with the fullness of his humanity, which was infinitely rich, infinitely kind, and deeply sensitive to the quietest stirring of the subtlest emotions. David Davis was one of those rare, rare souls on whom nothing is lost, and he was always willing to share the harvest of all he knew and felt. He was one of the finest men Memphis has ever known.
