[OT] Dagny's eTribute

Hi friends. Once again, apologies for bringing a very personal & emotional post to our otherwise somber & non-emotional financial community (oh wait... I was forgetting all the regular political nonsense noise... guess my apology's only for making this so intimately personal ;~)

Photos mostly by me, some by Joanne, Laulau, or Winnie,

Poetry by Sherene Kershner (who's likely lurking around here somewhere,)

Music & lyrics by Brian Wilson

Handprints, Love & Life by Dagny Han Donhoff

(turn your speakers up! Work-safe, unless you're a big baby, like me...)

PS. we'll be having an upbeat/inspirational memorial & living celebration in Kirkland WA on Sat. Feb. 28th... our intention is to have it really be a positive thing for all who attend/participate. We already have many friends with toddlers who knew (or knew of) "Dave's baby" and my intention is for an event that will have even the KIDS feeling good about our life stages and their meanings. If you're nearby, have a kid, ARE a kid, or wish you were... and would like to join us (don't really have to have ever piped up online before... prior lurkers very welcome,) just let me know.

Dave, never apologize for your deep feelings--they are what make us all human & connected.
What a beautiful tribute for such a beautiful little girl.
Your love for her is everlasting. There is one picture of you & your sweet Dagny and you can just see the connection in both of your eyes. That bond will never be broken. Keeping you & your dear wife & family in Special Thoughts & Prayers.
