Not sure what to say?

Betty, so sorry for your loss .

What a special soulmate you two had with each other. And the years that you probably travel and have many memories to share. Something special that you will always . But yes it was time that God needed your beloved David home and he needed to rest. But that kind of love remine forever. God bless you Sister Betty Geary I love you and I know God will provide for you.

David and his brother Bobby were my first two playmates in Newport when I was a child. His mother Anne was my mother's best friend and maid of honor at her wedding. I remember building towers out of playing cards at their home when I was 4 years old. Didn't see him after we moved away but remember the fun as a child with his family.

May he rest in peace and he will always be loved.

Betty, so sorry for your loss. He was a great warrior for the Lord and is now in the arms of his Savior. Always remember the love and memories he left behind.

What a wonderful man you were here on earth. Thank you for teaching Abby how to shoot hoops!

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

Very sorry to hear of his passing. He is with our Lord now. He was a shining light to all that met him. Blessings and condolences to all who he has left behind.

So sorry to hear that David went home to be with the Lord, my love and prayers go out to you Betty and your family.
