In the fall of 2009, my friend and mentor David Mark died of leukemia. I didn't know David as long as I've known others in my life, but I was quickly fast friends with him. And his wife. And their two kids. And his mom. And his sister. And his parents-in-law.
All people who deserve David to still be here.
David made me smarter, he made me laugh and in ways he never realized, he made me ready to do the job he'd leave behind. Never as well, but that's my fault, never his. There's not a morning sitting at his desk I don't still think of it as his. There's not an afternoon I don't see his picture on the wall looking over me, trying to help me still. And there's not an evening I see his wife or his kids and doubt that the goodness he shared while he could lives on.
Cancer took that away from me. From Heather. From Sander and Haille. And from more people than I can name. Please consider donating a few dollars in his memory so the next friend, parent or spouse gets more time with the people that will miss them.
