So grateful to have met Dr. D. So long ago. I have fondness for his spirit and will remember him always with great fondness.
It is with great fondness that I remember Dr. D. I always thought he had a twinkle in his eyes and he always made me smile. Such an enigmatic spirit, I am grateful to have known him and will hold his memory dearly. May peace be granted and perpetual light shine upon him.
You will be missed greatly. RIP my dear godfather.
