This is horrible news.? What a wonderful and generous man!? Multitalented, smart and a great friend to so many.? His leadership both within and without the meteorite community iswidely known and will be sorely missed by all.? Very tragic news.
Sean, I'm ready to help Maddie and the rest of Dave's family in any way I can.? Please don't hesitate to ask.

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.
