David had such a gentle soul. He gave a lot of himself to others and didn't ask for anything in return. We will always miss you David! I know that I will always carry you with me in my heart. Thank you for all that you gave to us.
I'm so sorry that David is gone too...I remember the gentle, caring boy who obviously didn't change very much through the years. You have my sympathy, Bonnie Luehmann Harcey
