Words do not even begin to express my feelings at the loss of you from this earth, David. You moved in across the drive from us, into a neighborhood full of crazy kids/teens, mostly gathering next door (heehee). The years progressed and along came a wonderful little boy, who you allowed me to babysit when he was in your care. I grew to love Alex as a little brother. Then the day you became a part of my Mom's life will always be special to me as I had secretly been encouraging it. The years have been good. You were there through my crazy teens and young adult life, always being supportive, and you were there through the birth of Branyan and through my raising of him, again showing support and care. The years have flown by, back and forth. I will NEVER forget a V.A. visit Mom and I had with you where we talked, laughed and "cut up". It seems like it was yesterday and I will cherish it, you were yourself, the real David (despite what we expected) sharp as a knife like we never missed a beat. Then our last visit I know you knew we were there and when I tickled your feet, I waited for a kick me. I could go on, but I know you know I care immensely for you and Alex. I will truly miss you, David!
