    of his friends who lost him. Thinking of you and prayers, Pat and family.

  7. Oh the memories I have growing up with all of my cousins. But no one was like David. He sure has a special place in many hearts but none so special than to my dad. He talked often on how much he enjoyed spending time with David as a young boy. Teaching him to ski and buying him a sailor hat once he got up was told over and over. Until we meet again.

  8. So sorry for your loss! Dave and I were classmates. I remember him being a great guy back in school! Prayers for all your family!
