I know there are no words that can heal the broken hearts of the Kimowitz family so I will not try. As a long time employee of Dr. Hal Kimowitz I know how warm, loving, and caring your family is and that all of you embracing each other is what will help you get through each day. My sincere and heartfelt sympathy to you all.

I distinctly remember the day in college when Dave let me copy his extensive, pirated iTunes music collection. I remember thinking how can 1 person like all these bands? How can someone who loves so much of my favorite music also be listening to so much music that is terrible?
To be honest, many years later I still don't have a complete handle on Dave's extensive music 'guest list.' But, I am reminded of another college moment with a philosophy professor who suggested to us critical students that instead of merely finding what was wrong with the text, we try to find something right.
I have come to know Dave much better than I did since he first gave me his music folder. Dave didn't love all this music equally. He loved music, and so he tried to find value in as much of it as possible. he understood that the love of music was about inclusivity not exclusivity.
Of course, Dave's approach to music was simply his approach to life. He had so many friends, hobbies, interests, because he found virtue before finding fault. Most people, at best, can achieve this outlook maybe with a lot of self-reflection and discipline. But, Dave was just made this way. We were lucky to have him.

My last memory of seeing David brings me smiles and warms my heart. We were recently at Adath Shalom, our parent’s synagogue with my parents and older daughter to listen to an Israeli band from NYC play. David was sitting with his children jamming to the beat, a big smile on his face, his arms around his kids, Geri, Hal,Adam, Mara, Stef and Richard were all there with their kids too. I was with my parents Elaine and Elliott and older daughter Mira. Josh was home my youngest Dina was napping. The support, friendship, welcome and warmth we always receive from the Kimowitz family is never ending! They bring out the best in all of us. The love David had for his children and his wife Laura couldn’t go unnoticed- as the same with all the brothers. They’re a model family. There are no words or explanation for David being taken from all of us. It’s truly heart breaking. I appreciate the light and humor at the funeral as David wouldn’t want us to live in sorrow and would want us to remember him and live on with his memory. Sending our love to the Kimowitz family. We are always here for you anytime any day.

I had met David only a few times and we spoke like we had known each other for years.

May His memory live on as a blessing,
May the acts of kindness that he performed live on in the lives of the Family.......
