My brother will be missed by many in the Beaufort community. He loved living there. Will someone please go warm his usual seat at the Boundary Street Cafe?

I have added his photo to this message, as it is missing from his obituary.

I took this picture of David in Milwaukee, in May 1987, during the garden party Katie Lott and I threw for our birthday (we share the same) - a wonderful, happy memory.

Dave was a very dear friend, from boys in Eagles Mere thru college thru important events in our lives. I smile when I think of him. I loved his sense of humor, good nature, and wonderful intellect. He was a very special person.

David had been a wonderful American Dad to me when I spent a year with him and his family as a foreign exchange student in Milwaukee back in 1986-7. We always stayed in touch and Ill miss arguing with him about US politics so much. All my love to Katie, Ted, Sarah and Jay...

Dave was a long time friend, from college days, possibly even Eagles Mere in high school. I always loved his grin, his mischievous twinkle, his intellect, his enthusiasm. He will be missed. Love you, Dave. My love also to Hee and family.
