Dear Eric,

I am very sorry to hear of the passing of your Uncle Dave. It was such a pleasure to meet him in person at Best Bead in 2007! I remember that he was with a good friend of yours, Brian, and they were having a great time at the bead show. Dave was especially amused with the collection of fakes ( I did The Best Bead show for Bassem that year) that I displayed together - Warring States, Phoenician heads, Islamics.

He was a wealth of life experiences, both in beads and everything else. I visited The Bead Museum last February, just a few weeks before it closed, and had the opportunity to photograph his handmade books - which are now a part of the Mengei Museum. These books, to me, are just incredible.

Our bead community has lost one of it's kindest elders. My heart goes out to you, Eric, and your family and friends. Thank you for letting us know.
