In Memorium

David W. Sumner: 1958-2017
Dave passed away, at home, on March 25, 2017. He collapsed, in his photo studio, on March 21st, was taken to the ER, admitted to ICU, and then back home on hospice on the 24th. As mentioned in the blog about his journey with Leukemia, his spleen was bleeding, as well as his liver, and he went into kidney failure after more than 20 transfusions.

I know it's a cliche to say that your spouse was your best friend, but it was true in this case. Both of us have many good friends and Dave was the best friend a person could hope for. To the vulnerable & defenseless, he was a hero. To his friends, he was loyal, generous, and kind. To young photographers, he was a mentor. To most of the rest of the world, he was a curmudgeon. 

I join the rest of our friends in mourning his loss.
