Amber, Bryan, Marvin, Carol and Family:
David has been a really good friend for well over 20 years. He supported me through some rough times – especially when my son passed away. We had many good times – he always knew how to make me laugh; never a dull moment with David. This past couple of years have been difficult – cancer is a terrible thing – but David kept his sense of humor and his up-beat attitude and dealt with what ever crossed his path. I will miss him. Jerry will miss him; but we know he is pain and cancer free and running with his old buddy Bill again – waiting on the rest of us to cross over. You will all be in our thoughts and prayers.
My Sweet Friend David – I will miss you – your true friendship, your wit, your humor, your jokes and stories – we made many great memories with our good friends. RIP&L
Our prayers and thoughts are with the family.
