My old kung fu teacher's sister texted me this morning. David was doing well, considering the circumstances, no longer eating but he was surrounded by flowers and seemed to be at peace in the hospital.
I had two meetings already scheduled in Escondido and I texted her back and asked if I could visit him at Palomar Hospital today. She said that she would check and get back to me. I was in the mood for Korean bibimbop and was meeting Ken at a place off Nordahl for lunch.
I got the text as I was walking in to the restaurant, there would be no physical goodbye, he had passed over the rainbow bridge this very morning.
Pancreatic cancer is such a tough enemy. I have lost several strong people I love to it, including David Willey and Garry Cohen. Not much I can say. May they rest in peace.
