    I have known David my entire life even though we haven’t seen each other in years. David’s mother and my mother went to school together in Arkansas. We were also neighbors in California. So very sorry to hear of his passing. Prayers to the family

    I knew David back in High School. We became friends on facebook several years ago. I value the few chats we had. He shared with me how much he missed his parents and now he is reuinted with them. I knew him as a kind, thoughtful and caring person on this earth- but now even more so in Gods kingdom – free from the cares of this world. See you one day my dear friend when it’s my turn to cross over. Love never dies… hold onto that love and it will keep you and comfort you until you are reuinted with one another during that final hour. My loving thoughts and prayers to his wife, children, and family.

    The memories of you will live on in my heart forever. We are only 12 1/2 months apart in age so we spent so much time together growing up. You were always so loving and caring for your sisters. Liz and I are truly heartbroken and shocked that you have passed away. From the bottom of my heart thank you for all that you did for me and all the encouraging talks to me. I will miss you every day the rest of my life. I love you so very much and my life will never be the same here without you in it. Until we meet again may you RIP my beloved brother. Renee
