David Kirk died yesterday - cancer took him at last. He did quite a bit of work with us in the past before he got sick, and Kathy and Denise counted him as a good friend.
I didn't know him quite as well, but I worked with some of his code. That may not seem much, but it always showed invention, clarity and attention to detail in an environment that doesn't particularly reward good behaviour seeing as it's completely hidden from the ordinary human being. I respect that.
