So sorry about Dave

I learned last night that Dave died from injuries sustained in the collision the other day. Though I only knew him thru the internet and this race, I know he was a loving, adventurous and generous man. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and loved ones.

The world is a poorer place because of Dave's tragic death. Death always comes too soon, except for those whose lives are overcome with boredom or suffering. But the world is a richer place because of Dave's life. He chose a life of adventure and wonder and we, too briefly, got to share in that adventurous life. Thank you, Dave, for your life and your wonder. You will be very missed.
