I met David when we were both part of the group assigned to Europe in the fall of 1993.  It was a fairly large group, but we took an instant liking to each other.  I was a white kid raised in racist MS, he was a black kid raised in the northeast.  I never developed the racism that was/is characteristic of MS, and I never consciously thought of the difference.  He was simply a very intelligent, likable guy.  I never thought of him any other way.  We both taught graduate courses and had some assignments together in Germany and Italy and did some traveling together to places like Paris, Rome, Luxemburg, and Munich for Oktoberfest (he had my back because he didn't drink alcohol).  We often went to movies or parties together.  David talked about his family but never let on that it was his "adopted" family.  First I knew of that was from the above.

I left Europe for Asia in 1996, and married in Thailand in 2000.   As we led our separate lives, for the most part I lost touch with David.  But I can still remember the last time we said goodbye and all of the good memories in between.  

I could go on and on about how much I liked David, but I'll just say, he was a great friend for the short while I knew him.  I will miss knowing he's in the world.      Charles Brumfield

I was sad to learn about David's death.  I hope that he is at peace.  We went  the UK every year for 3 or 4 years TDY and it was a pleasure to know and work with David.

I am deeply saddened to read about David's sudden call to eternity. I remember I heard the name a couple of times back then in his days in Heidelberg. Unfortunately I never had the opportunity to meet him personally. My deepest sympathies go out to all his dear ones. May he rest in peace.

Hi Maggie and David,

I missed your message until today. How is FL? We are still in MD and I am working with SS faculty now.

Bill Berglof was a flamenco guitarist.  I can't think of him any other way.  One of the first people I came into contact with in the early 1960s when I was studying flamenco.  That was nearly 60 years ago, and now I see his kind face on a memorial page.  Bill was well-loved in the flamenco community by those of us who knew him.  An elegant, kind and talented man with a gentle sense of humor.  I'm now a well-known flamenco specialist, and I can say Bill was an excellent guitarist indeed.  I hadn't seen him in many many years, but miss him now that he's gone.  The attached photo was taken in Malaga Spain in 1974, Bill in the middle, me standing next to him holding my son, and Bill's wife Atsuko on the far right.  Thank you for reading these words about dear Bill.

Robert, I just went on your homepage and spent a lot of time surfing it. It is absolutely impressive in its content and detail! I was particularly interested in your discussion of environmental problems in Okinawa and its marine environment and will share that with my students as an example of human-caused destruction of the oceans. Hope you don't mind. Many of my adult students are simply unaware of the impact of our presence in so many land and marine areas. Since I usually have a couple or more students from Okinawa in my biology classes (online), they will be able observe this in their own backyard. - I really appreciate the effort that went into your site. Hope that you are well. Best wishes,
regards and peace,
....Ggisela
