Rosalie,
I'm so sad to hear of David's passing. He was one of the great scholars and humanists of an era that is quickly fading. The loss of both Julie Harris and David within months of each other has shaken all who love the poetry of Emily Dickinson.
I will always be inspired by his brilliance, his generosity, and his sparkling smile.

Tom..am very sorry for the loss of your dad. I still remember the few times i met him. He was very humble and kind. Your mum and your brothers are in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Rosalie, I would just like to put on record my gratitude for David's generosity to younger scholars who visited Amherst: he shared contacts, information, enthusiasm, guidance and deep, deep knowledge. He was a patient and wise man, and his books will live on. My sincerest condolences to you and to your family.

I will always remember my beloved Uncle Dave as one of the smartest and nicest men I ever knew. I cherish my wonderful childhood memories spent in Amherst, Nantucket and Rockport with the Porter family.
My deepest sympathies to my Aunt Rosalie and my three cousins Tom, Dave and Steve and the rest of the family.
