舅舅舅妈，I’m very grateful to have seen you both, I wish it was under different circumstances. I’m deeply regretful and feel great remorse that I did not spend more time with David. He was truly good. I remember having a deep conversation with him about humanity and the suffering in the world. Why do things happen as they are? Why do bad things happen to good people? The conclusion we came to is that as long as there is love in the world, all will be ok. Love and Time heals all wounds. David will always be in my heart. We spent so many childhood years together, in a way he is a part of me and shaped the person I am. As I am writing this, I feel a part of me is gone and it’s still difficult for me to process. 舅妈，you had said life is like a dream. I agree and in that dream I think we need to find happiness. I think David had found his happiness. I think David truly lived life to the fullest. He pursued his passion, made great friends with loving family and I believe he truly enjoyed life. As he put it “it’s been a good run”. I think he wants you both to enjoy life like he did. Find richness in the small things. To find a flow state and be enveloped with what makes you happy, just like he did with music. I’m sorry I had to leave so abruptly, but I hope we can all get dinner soon sometime, enjoy nice conversation, bring up fond memories and laugh about the funny things David, William and I did as kids.
