Requiescat in Pace, Dear David Hendrickson, My Best Friend

My best friend, David Hendrickson, died on Feb 15, in Gainesville, Florida.

He was a soulmate Hoosier and we escaped the doldrums of Indiana by finding each other and fueling each other’s dreams of traveling to distant lands and experiencing new cultures, food, art and music.  He found me a job in Algeria.  I found him one in Italy.  We met our partners there and returned to the states.  He was a wonderful uncle to my kids, a confidant, and moral support when I went through hard times.  I hope I was there for him as much as I knew he was there for me.  He loved Bruckner and Ralph Vaughn Williams and this is one of our favorite pieces.
