This is a tough one. All deaths bring sadness to our lives, it is never easy to let go of the ones we love. David touched so many people and was loved so deerly, it is hard to imagine a world without his physical being.
I will always hear him saying "Oh you have to try this wonderful little wine I found" and once that was tasted there would be another "wonderful little wine". Through these memories David will forever dwell in my heart as I know he will in all of yours.

Iowa just learned the sad news about David. We are heartbroken at the Writers' Workshop. He was loved and admired by his colleagues and those that had the pleasure of knowing him. He was a wonderful man and writer and will be sorely missed. May God be with his family during this difficult time.

To David's family:

I am saddened beyond words to hear of David's passing. He was the heart of every magazine I edited -- Update, React, Parade -- and a cherished friend. I assigned David the stories that mattered most -- the ones that summoned readers to reach out and take action, that elicited 'the better angels of our nature,'  as Lincoln wrote. Because he cared so deeply about human rights and improving the lives of children, because he loved words and images so much, because he took so much pride in his work and made every quote, comma and anecdote count, because (I am moved to repeat) he cared so much and so deeply, David captured and stirred the best in us. I will remember him for his compassion and integrity, his curiosity and spirit of adventure and for the difference he made in so many lives, including my own.

Please know that my thoughts are with you, his loved ones.

Dear members of David's family,
I just heard today about David's passing. I am shocked and deeply saddened by this news. He came to UMBC in 2009 as our New Student Book Experience speaker. He talked with our returning Peace Corps volunteers, had lunch with students, dinner with faculty and staff, and provided us with an educational experience we will never forget. What we will remember most was his passion for life and his gracious spirit.

I am so very sorry for your loss.
