Dave, the leading light behind The Blog of Funny Names is an extraordinary person by any objective reckoning, and I feel very lucky to know him through my association with BoFN, into which he kindly invited me a few years ago. (Sad to say, I’ve become a rare and sporadic contributor, but I am still a regular there in the comments.)
Dave is going to med school and fighting cancer at the same time, and many of our hearts go out for him.
I’m not much for contemporary Christian music but I have a soft spot for the rendition of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy below. I present it with my best prayer intentions for Dave. The entire Chaplet can be heard here.
UPDATE: BoFN carrier of the flame Fannie has alerted me to a great news story on Dave by NBC’s San Diego newsroom.
Dave’s sister Vanessa has set up a GoFundMe page here.
