Mr. and Mrs. Morgan, and Dan: I just read of David's death in the Vanderbilt Magazine. David and I were friends at Wofford, and at Vanderbilt (he in Law, I in Divinity); I visited him when he was an attorney in New York, and we had long talks about his decision to leave law and do a Ph.D. at Princeton. I am so very sorry that David and I had not been in contact these last few years. David was not only a brilliant mind, but a gentle, kind soul, with a wonderful sense of humor. I think of the many times he would let me talk him into playing the Grieg Piano Concerto one more time (he played it magnificently). I would love to know more about David's final years if you care to contact me; I am an Anglican priest in Tallahassee, Florida- edudley@saint-peters.net God's Peace, Eric Dudley+

I remember David from West Mecklenburg High School. We rode the bus together for a couple of years, I lived on the corner of Fallsdale Dr. & Belmorrow Dr. I liked that David thought differently than most of the other kids at West Meck. David was the only person at West Meck. that I remember going to summer school voluntarily - because he could learn something extra - not because he needed to go to make up a class!

David was always a linguist!! Back in 1975-76 the foreign exchange student from Finland (Merja) lived with my family and rode the bus to school for a couple of months. When David met Merja he immediately started asking about the Finnish language. He wanted to learn Finnish and asked Merja to write out the conjugation of "I am" and a variety of other nouns and verbs - with those he could get a grasp of the language.

I saw David a few years ago while he was jogging in Coulwood, I still live in the neighborhood. We had a 10-15 minute conversation catching up on the previous 30 years. I am glad that I was able to see him that day and I am very sorry to hear of his passing. David was a special man that added to the world while he was here.

I just learned of David's death by reading the Vanderbilt Law magazine. David and I were good friends in law school, and were on the Law Review together. I moved to Texas after law school and lost touch with David after he left the firm in New York. He had the greatest wit and sense of humor. He was a kind southern gentleman.I was so sad to learn that he passed away.

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Morgan,
It is almost July, and I want to let you know that even for those of us who had not been able to see David for years, because of geographical distance, his passing remains a terrible shock. I got to know David in Princeton; my husband and I saw him again in New York, and then remained in touch through a common friend... just a few weeks ago, I received a message from yet another former Princeton friend of David who lives in Paris (I'm in Brussels)and we shared our profound sadness. I join the voice of many people who have written before me in expressing immense respect and admiration for a person who was as brilliant as he was humble, a gentle, wonderful, funny, and loyal friend, an exceptional human being. My thoughts and prayers go to you and your family.
