To David’s family,
What a great loss to us all. What a wonderful friend, neighbor, mentor & then client. I helped him find, then design his 10th St place, finding homes for all his books and found the unusual table in the entry from a London designer.
Traveling often, only just found out when his old aol E was bounced back.
Sending his family heartfelt, warmest wishes
