SUMMARY: A good friend is gone.I just got the news that the brain tumor that has been fighting with my friend David has finally taken the upper hand and removed him from this world. He was a smart, funny, talented, successful, and generous man, who came into my friend Sue's life when they were in their 40s. He made her very happy, which is about the best epitaph I can give him. I am grieved that the world didn't choose to give them more than a dozen years together.
I wish I had better words to rebuild him here and now, but there are no sufficient words.
