To the family and friends: You have my deepest sympathy. I went to school with David since 3rd grade. He was always so kind and thoughtful. I lived out of state from 1969 until 1999 and never saw David until he came to the funeral home in 2004 when my mother passed away. I saw him again when his mother passed away and then 3 weeks ago. We had some time to talk and I was going to call him as soon as I returned from my trip to N.C. I was certainly shocked to read that he passed away. David was a great guy.

May God comfort you during your time of loss.
