Not sure what to say?

I just can’t believe this. My family spent lots of time with the Barnett over the years. David was a quiet guy with a sense of humor, He always had a fist bump to the shoulder to say hi. He also made great grilled hamburgers. David will be missed but it gives me comfort and I know Sandy John and Dennis that we will see him again. Love you guys so much and know we are here for you.

I was heartbroken to hear about David's passing
I have so many memories of David when he start going to the races with Louis and I.
He was a very nice man and he will be missed.
Sandy and family may God bless you and give you peace and comfort
