In memorium

Yesterday I attended a graveside service for a man I met several years ago through Business Networkers International. David Feldmann passed away this weekend from cancer.

I am not sad. David was a man who lived with integrity and always gave what he could of himself. He did a 100 mile bike ride each spring for MS, being one of the top fundraisers. He had 7 children, 3 of which were adopted.

David was an insurance broker and settlement attorney. He spent meticulous time reviewing settlement papers from the first letter to the last period, making sure every words was in order. He believed in doing business "the old way", one person at a time, one step at a time and with the client's needs in mind. David always offered to review people's insurance policies to see if he could find a way to get better coverage for their money and to make sure their needs were truly being met. He never asked for a sale. This was one of his gifts.

I am grateful that David was part of my life. He knew what he stood for and was proud to stand tall. His integrity and business savvy were great models for me.

Shalom, David. May your legacy live on through each person you touched in some way.
