I just watched the tribute. I'm in tears. How beautiful it was. It gave me a chance to understand Dave a little better. He did what he loved and always had man's best friend with him (his pipe too!). It looked like he really loved and enjoyed his life.

Hi Hillary
Thank you for sharing that with us. We feel such a loss without David. What a wonderful idea to fundraise for RCC. Your Dad would be proud. What a wonderful picture tribute Gray's did. Thank you for sharing that with us. Hoping all of you are doing well. I think of your Mom, Alex and you often.

Hello,
Your fight and determination inspires me!
My partner and I live in theU.K, (Simon my partner and best friend) has kidney cancer which almost killed him back in August last year because it was not found until it traveled up his aorta and into his heart. I would love to be in touch with others. Here in the U.K we have been kept in the dark about his condition and even after life saving surgery he has still not been offered treatment.(maybe this is normal...I don't know?)
I hope one day that we find the strength like yourself.
My admiration
Claire and Simon

I was so happy to read your post today Hillary. Your Dad would be so very proud of your determination to carry on his legacy by fundraising for cancer. The photo tribute to David is wonderful and enhances is love for nature, the outdoors and the great sportsman that he was. He has brought so much courage and inspiration to all of his readers through this site and he became a friend to all of us, even though we never met him personally. Good luck in your quest and I look forward to reading your future posts!
