In your company, I felt I was living in the moment. Last we met was in Bethesda. After all of the establishments closed, we sat in your car and talked until wee hours of the morning. You were the kind of person someone could do that with -- the kind with the charisma to draw you in and the depth to keep you there.
Your zest for life radiated through the fantastic way you played the cello. I'm fortunate to have witnessed your immense talent and ability to captivate an audience. When you played, a blanket of mystique befell the room, capturing the attention of all encompassed by it.
A mench with character; a friend to many, young to old, you brought ease to the lives of those you shared a friendship with and awe to audiences of your musical talent.
