We were all saddened when David made his transition in 2002

We love you, David


In one of the stars, I shall be living.

In one of them, I shall be laughing.

And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing when you look at the sky at night.

--The Little Prince
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Christ of the Abyss


In those quiet moments
in the still of the night
Remember to rejoice
and celebrate life
Do not think of me gone
and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glints on snow
I am the sunlight on the grain
I am the gentle autumn's rain
When you awaken in the morning hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in flight
I am the soft stars that shine
You will hear my gentle voice
and remember to rejoice
Never give up your fight
and remember always
to Celebrate Life....

Brent cuffs David

To become a true master of fate
You must first become a 'Knower of Self.'
When you can repose in comfort between the wings of your Dragon,
Which is not born nor dies through ages eternal,
Then will shadows forever vanish
Leaving that which within you knows ... for it is
Knowledge not of fleeting lifetimes of illusion,
But of a real man that was, that is
And that will be again -
For whom the hour shall never strike!

--from "The 21 Lessons of Merlyn"


David's birthday cake People float through your life
Like shadows and light
One minute they’re here
Then they’re gone.

Fragments of stories,
Visions and laughter
Remain though they’ve passed
As the sun leaves the day.

They never grow old in your mind
Though the years have moved on
Frozen in time
Like a photo of days gone by.

They touch your life,
You love them, you dislike them,
You laugh and you cry
And you sing.

They etch a place in your heart
In your mind, in your soul,
And you carry them with you through life
‘Til the end of your days.

-- Dawn


David and Richelle renewed their vows in 1999

I died as a mineral and became a plant,
I died as a plant and rose to animal
I died as an animal and I was man.
Why should I fear? When was I ever less by dying?
Yet once more I shall die as man, to soar
In the Blessed Realm; but even from godhood
I must pass on ...

-The Mathnawi
from "The 21 Lessons of Merlyn"


Life is eternal and love is immortal; And death is only a horizon, And a horizon is nothing Save the limit of our sight.

-- Rossiter W. Raymond


Death is not extinguishing the light; it is putting out the lamp because dawn has come.

-- Rabindranath Tagore

Every man dies. Not every man really lives.

-- William Wallace - [From the movie Braveheart]

What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.

-- Albert Pike

What we commonly call death does not destroy the body, it only causes a separation of spirit and body.

-- Brigham Young

David writing


We'll always remember that laugh!!

Be of good cheer about death

and know this as a truth

--that no evil can happen to a good man,

either in life or after death.

-- Socrates
