In addition to statistics, David took care in developing my attitude as a scientist - and he wrote a poem of his own in my draft thesis about whales and statistics. He also cared for us personally. We were invited to use Lorie's and David's house when they went to New Zealand in the summer of 1973. Our newborn child spent her first time out of Alta Bates hospital in their house. David also gave me support in a more touchy matter. I was on a US Navy grant, and felt uneasy when I realized that I had to acknowledge the grant in a publication. Strike it in the last galley, was David's advice - which I in the end did not follow. And there was fun, also outside the soccer field. David suggested the movie "The harder they come". My son, an aspiring reggae musician, was happy to find the Jimmy Cliff LP in my old stock. In the last couple of years we have been lucky to have David as an advisor in our Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis in Oslo, and to have David repeatedly visiting.
