My grandfather Robert Norton is David’s brother and I wanted to send my thoughts and prayers to you during this difficult time. When I was a teenager, I got the chance to spend the summer with Uncle David and Aunt Brenda in Virginia during the summer. It was one of the best memories I had growing up. I had never seen the ocean before and They took me to the beach many times. Also, I looked forward to our daily trips to McDonalds for Uncle David’s free coffee. He had told me that he had a part in creating the original McDonald’s playland and I thought that was the coolest thing. I remember him and Aunt Brenda being very kind and gracious to me and I had such a good time with them. Unfortunately, our families grew apart through the years and I hadn’t seen Uncle David for many years. I will always have the special memories of my summer with him.
