Jacob sends the sad news, and a reminder that those dying are not simply statistics:

“It is with great sorrow that we share the news that Moises Alfaro, who many of us at Hogan Lovells and the surrounding DC area knew as the owner of “Moises Alfaro Shoe Shine and Repair,” recently passed away from COVID-19. Moises was always quick with a friendly smile and a compliment. He worked hard, and his mastery of the art of the shoeshine has kept the spring in our steps for years. Moises also touched many people’s lives by spending part of his time teaching Spanish. Moises leaves behind a wife and three children. Please consider contributing to THIS GoFundMe account set up to assist his wife and children during this painful time.”


“Dear PoPville,

Sam the man Burns passed away on March 7. He was such a cornerstone of DC. There is an official GoFundMe here. There has already been a private service for his family, but there will be celebratory events after it’s safe to gather, I’m sure. Here’s something I wrote. -Courtney”

“I love life: all the drama, all the pain, all the passion, all the joys, all the highs, all the lows. We don’t write the script.”

Sam. The. Man. Burns.
What can I say about you that hasn’t already been said? I know everyone you left in your powerful wake is praying that wherever you are grants you the same healing, magic and salvation you gave to us when you were behind the decks. You were an idol, a god, a mentor, a friend, a force, a man. I am not going to pretend like I knew you better than I did, but I will share 3 lessons that came from you. Read More
