While I regret the loss of his wife, it sounds more like an excuse than a reason. If DD was a profitable company and he wanted to walk away he'd simply sell out and move on. If he's closing up shop rather than selling the business I'm betting that it was already in trouble and losing his wife was just the last straw.

Either way it's a tragic loss.
