See David was ill and had a few months left to live. He reached out because he did not want the memory of his daughter to fade with his passing.

"I know that this memorial means nothing to anyone but I, and I will soon vanish from existence. I want her to know that she will NEVER be forgotten!"
He was passing down the story of his struggle, his heartache but most of all, his love as a way to preserve his memory of Virginia. All he wanted was someone to hear his story and to keep the folklore alive.

A loving, heartbroken father keeping who Virginia was for him - from ever fading.
