Oh man... this is terribly sad. Hy has been in my thoughts since hearing about his illness over a month ago. I was just wondering the other day about his condition, and it has truly saddened me to hear about David's loss.

David is a tough guy, and his father would want nothing more than for him to continue with his shows.

David, you are in my thoughts and prayers.
