Eight years ago, David was the victim of a near death stroke which impaired his speech, slowed his mobility and immobilized his right hand. Due to his indomitable will and the extraordinary support of Frances, his wife of sixty-eight years, David survived. But it was his love of life that enabled him – against all odds – to find a way to continue the activity that made his life so rich and full. Painting, second only to his love of Frances, his Children, and his Grandchildren continues to renew his drive and will to enjoy every day as if it is the only day. With his right hand rendered useless, David fought harder and learned to paint with his left hand. The work, as well as David, continues to grow and flourish.
