Just devastated to wake up this morning and hear this sad sad news. Dave
was an inspiration to many, me included. He was so kind and generous and
was a huge figurehead for the meteorite community. If he talked, we
listened and with good reason. He often uttered the deepest and wisest of
words in such a humble manner. He will be missed by us all.

My thoughts are with Maddie, Kasia and all his family.
