I am so shocked to hear about David. My condolences to his wife and family. I enjoyed running in to him in the evening while walking the dogs. We had some great conversations. He was also a great neighbor. I will sure miss him.

David was a patient of ours at our dentist office. I always looked forward to seeing him in my chair. He always had a smile on his face and had lots of stories to tell. I am so sorry for your loss, he will defiantly be missed.

I'm sorry to hear about your loss. I'm sure it's been tough on your family, especially the boys. I saw the scholarship and thought of these words from Rosa Parks, “Memories of our lives, of our works, and our deeds will continue in others.”
