Such wonderful memories of crossing musical paths with you over the years, David, at workshops, dances, and jam sessions up and down the west coast. And that first meeting in Portland, Ore. back in the 1990s — discovering that you lived in the same small town in Massachusetts as my brother!

Absolutely loved your April 17 celebration — such an outpouring from far and wide to show you how much you've meant to so many. And Sue Songer had us drooling over your book — can't wait to get a copy.

One of my favorite memories of you is that jam session at your place with Susan Conger — heaven to play fiddle with two of my favorite composers of tunes — and the Christmas ice storm that prolonged the session.

All the best to you, David, and congratulations once again on your CDSS Lifetime Contribution Award. So well deserved.
