David is gone

It is with deep sadness that I tell you David is gone. He died peacefully at 2 p.m. Friday, November 21, 2014. At the end, David was surrounded by his nephews Jesse, Tonk and Rio, and by me and Jessica. David opened his eyes, perked up, took an in-breath, a tear rolled down his left cheek and then he died. A shiva will be held this Sundayg at 4:30 at the Common House, and continue during the week at my house. People have asked me about donations.  David was the primary instigator of a line in the Cohousing budget to support new capital projects. If you feel inclined to make a donation in memory of David, e-mail me at judygumboalbert@gmail.com. With deep sadness, Judy

  1. Dear Judy, Lisa and I send our love and want to be in touch with you but only when you want us to….

  2. Dear Judy,
    David was a dear and good friend to me, and a remarkable inspiration and role model in both how he accepted with equanimity life’s “bull and bear” cycles and the final verdict. I remember so vividly how much we all worried about him the year after Donna’s passing. With his circulatory scares, I expected to lose him much sooner. I believe that his new and joyous life with you is to be credited with how long and how enthusiastically he lived thereafter. I am so sorry that your time together wasn’t longer. I am also very grateful that through David, I was able to know you and your amazing story. Please let me know if there is anything I can help with. May the wings of peace enfold you both, in your separate locations, but with hearts joined.
    Love
    Jeffrey
