What a lot of us wouldn't give for one more night of music and friendship at Irish Eyes, my friend. The world will be a lesser place without you. May God grant you eternal rest and give solace to your family and loved ones.

So sorry to hear of David's passing. David and I had a friendship that began more than 50 years ago. He was a wonderful person - talented, smart, with a great sense of humor. He enriched my life immensely. I hope it is some solace that he was so widely loved and admired.
