Dear Orchid Friends,
It is with great sadness to learn about the passing of David
David joined Orchid in mid 2001. In his Orchid Introduction he says,
"I am a fourth-generation jeweler. My father, grandfather,
and great-grandfather were all diamond cutters. I am a
manufacturing cusom jeweler, gemologist, and gem dealer; in
business in Los Angeles' Jewelry District since 1983."
His interesting career found him creating jewelry for the movie
industry in Hollywood. David frequently posted on Orchid. He loved
the lively interactions and was one of the true ambassadors of
Orchid. I had the pleasure and honor of meeting him in person at the
Tucson Orchid Dinner in 2004.
Please accept my deepest condolences to your family and to Orchid.
We will miss your wonderful posts and contributions, however, they
will live forever in the Orchid archives.
