A concerned friend of Chilean David's

I had the privilege of meeting Chilean David about a month ago when he came into the store at Provisions. I was immediately struck by his kind energy. I could tell he was a good person. Though I speak hardly any Spanish we found a way to communicate and we laughed and cried together. When I was feeling lonely he said he would be my friend and he was.

His death has made me reflect on how we treat other humans as visitors to this island.

I worry that in this busy summer season the memory of David and his tragic and harrowing death will fade away.

Besides my own sadness though, I feel deeply sorry for what his family must be going through right now, thought they may not yet know of his passing.

I would like to gather memories of David's time here into some sort of file that we could give to his family. I am not sure how to contact his parents at this point but if you have anything you would like to share I will take on the responsibility of compiling stories.

Please email me at: charlottempriest [at] gmail [dot] com with stories or memories.

Thank you, with love.

Charlotte
