Dear Friend Lee and your amazing sons and their families:
David will not be forgotten. His kind ways and variety of interests made him especially pleasant to be around.
Of late he was failing but many the lovely time we have had over the years at your little beach house in Nantucket. Be comforted.
Our love to you all,
Dot and Skip Vollans

The world, especially Emily Dickinson studies, was greatly enriched by David's life and work. My last conversation with him was in a bright August Amherst sun just outside the Lord Jeff, and I will always treasure that memory--David laughing and throwing back his head and us both drinking in the sustaining joy of a mutual love for Dickinson and her words.

Also, the Emily Dickinson International Society, which I now serve as President, is grateful for his strong work and encouragement of ours.

In Possibility!
