My wife and I probably wouldn't have ever met were it not for David. We'll always be grateful for and recall with fondness of our time spent with David. He was so good at helping folks focus their perspective. He taught us to concentrate on what ought to matter and to let go of what we didn't need to worry about. We shall indulge in the splendors of fine dining together again, David; until then, you'll persist in our hearts. God's love.

David, was a good guy, we were friends in high school. He used to come over to party’s at my house. We kind of lost touch later, but he did wait on my wife and I in Brookside many years ago. David and I went to the Stevie Wonder concert at Kemper Arena years ago we might have been 16 or 18 years old. He was actually a very loyal friend.
