Thread Name: where is David O Docherty?
Subject: RE: where is David O Docherty?
I learned just yesterday of David's death. I had been thinking of him the past month or so and hoping things were going well for the two of you. He was an extraordinary man in so many ways with abundant
talent and rare humanity.
Although in the past couple of years I didn't see David much, I valued every meeting & lunch and chat we had in earlier times.He was a kind & gentle man, full of passion and the juice of life. I felt very warmed by his friendship and his kind words about things I had written in my Boston Irish Reporter column, 'Here & There.'
He was always willing to discuss, debate or ruminate about the issues of the moment or events reaching back to Ireland's past.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or care of the Boston Irish Reporter so I can inform readers if a memorial celebration in or around Boston happens. My thoughts are with you. Bill O'Donnell
