(David was honored to have been at Elisabeth’s bedside during her passing.) His first book, The Needs of the Dying, a #1 best-selling hospice book, received praise by Mother Teresa. His services have been used by Elizabeth Taylor, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Marianne Williamson when their loved ones faced life-challenging illnesses. He also worked with late actors Anthony Perkins and Michael Landon. David’s work has been featured on CNN, NBC, PBS and Entertainment Tonight. He has been discussed in the New York Times; and has written for the Boston Globe, The Los Angeles Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Wall Street Journal, and Anderson Cooper 360.
