I was listing to NPR today and learned of David's death. I am sorry and offer condolences. I loved talking with David at the Lion's Head. I love it that he escorted me to the White Horse Tavern and told me of his last night with Dylan Thomas there. David was brilliant and funny.

David, in the 1950's I remember you asked me (in the West End Bar, where you sat puzzling, a Bible in your lap, surrounded by your admirers), "Jane, you don't happen to know where Moses was when the lights went out?" "Yes, of course, I know." You were astonished. How could I possibly know? It's a Dublin, Catholic school kids' riddle--not an erudite biblical reference. It corresponds to Joyce's other riddle--"Who was MacIntosh?"

Your brilliance dazzled me, and still does. I'm immensely grateful for the hours I spent listening to you, and they informed my life.

Like you, I plan that my ashes will blow in the wind. But that is not all of you that will survive. The memory of your laughter, your incomparable wit, your searching intelligence, your beautiful energy and creativity will live among those of us who knew you. I am still laughing at so many of your bons mots. Your laughter lives--beautifully.

I just want to express my sincere condolences to the family and hope that you can draw comfort from the God of all comfort.
