Paula, Kathleen, and family, we are so sorry for the loss of this great man. David was such a kind and gentle soul and will be greatly missed. We are so happy to have been the “neighbors across the street” and will miss seeing him out in the yard or drive way tinkering with his many projects. We enjoyed talking with him any chance we got and even when we were too busy to talk, we would always get a guaranteed smile and wave from him. We continue to pray for you all during this difficult time. May David rest in eternal peace. Amen.
