Not sure what to say?

I extend my deepest sympathies to your family. (John 11:30-38)

Sorry to hear about David. We were next door neighbors when David was in high school. He is with the Lord now.

Amrita, I'm so sorry for your loss of David. It's also a big loss for Jackson area sports. I am grateful to him and several of his friends who let me hang around when they were about ages 10-15 while they played various sports at West Jackson Elementary and a nearby vacant lot. Some of them were Jackie Ervin and Joe Smith, both deceased, and Larry Wilson, John Shires, Terry Douglas, Dickie Brewster.
I'll be praying for you in the weeks ahead.

Dear Armita - With fondest memories and heartfelt sadness, we send you and your family our loving wishes for comfort and peace.

Dear Armita and Family,
It was a great experience to work at Union University with David as the Athletic Director, The Chairman of the Health, Physical Education, and Recreation Department.
He always had a smile, was a fine Christian gentleman, and a friend, indeed.
May he rest in peace.
Peace, Love, and Prayers to you and yours,
Peggy W. Birmingham

As part of the first girls basketball team David coached with the late Bobby Wilson at Jackson Junior High School, I will always remember his kindness and positive encouragement! Even in the last few years of his life, when we would run into each other, he always remembered my name , carried a smile and would give me a big hug ! Such a wonderful inspirational to all!
