David Gates, Rest In Peace

Yesterday was a long, bad day. the final cut on a day filled with trouble and disappointment was the word I got just before lunch. My good friend David Gates was dead. David was the Executive Director of the Mississippi Trial Lawyers Association. He was my boss when I worked for that organization, but it never felt like it. He was always someone who worked to help me do my job. he was always a friend to me and very kind to me in some of the more difficult times in my life. He's one of the best people I've met in my profession (legal or political) and he is missed dearly.

David died of a heart attack. I know he had one previously...at least 10 years ago. evidently it struck again. I did not go to the funeral. I was too upset.
