      Hoping that many future glaciologists will be formed by this great project and will remember Dave when they are happy.

      Some of my best memories of my time at uni were with David in France and Switzerland. He will be truly missed.

      DNC was a special man who achieved so much in his life and influenced so many people. The continuation of the AGP would be the finest memorial to him.

      Dave was a great mentor to me back in some of my most formative years. Will never forget the many happy times we shared.

      Thank you Dave for making me feel so welcome at your house so many times. Manchester seems a little less fun when I think about you not appearing at Thompsons late at night x
