We never had the good fortune to meet David, but to read him was, in a very real sense, to meet him. What a wonderful, unique voice the world has lost.

Alice and I are saddened by your loss and our thoughts and prayers are with the Rakoff family.

Dear Gina, Vivian, Ruth and Simon, we are so sad to hear of your loss. David was such an amazing person, an incredible writer, and he will be sorely missed. Our thoughts and love and prayers are with you- may God give you peace and strength.

Dear Dr. Rakoff,
Please accept my heartfelt sympathies for your loss. My thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time.

I did not see you close your eyes,
Or hear your last faint sigh,
I only heard that you were gone,
No time to say goodbye.

I will miss you dearest. Rest in Peace.
