Not sure what to say?

I had the privilege of working with David over ten years at our real estate e company in Tyler. David always has a good sense o humor with a dry whit. David did love people and they loved him. David had an ability to find opportunity that others passed by. To the family may you find delight with your mother and father who enjoyed life together for 50 years.
God Bless
