Not sure what to say?

For years, I ate with David, Frank Cassidy, George Barber, Don McGuire, and others at their special table at McDonald's. I was the only woman they allowed to regularly attend ;) David's stories were so special. He was such a funny, interesting, kind man. I really loved him. I am so sorry for his family's loss, as I feel his loss most keenly. My consolation is knowing that he is sitting at a bigger table in Heaven with many, many who loved him.

All of us here at the Dixie Cafe will miss David so much. Though I only knew him from his time here at the store, he had become a dear friend. We will miss his smiles, his jokes and sharing smart car pics with him. He loved the one with the deer. We will be praying for his family and friends. He was so loved.

Prayers for you and your family.. As kids I do remember your Dad as our mailman..your so very blessed to have your Dad all these years..

So sorry to hear about the passing of your father.

I am the CNA from Baptist Health Outpatient Infusion.

I was always touched by your father each time I met him and wished I had got to have known him better. He was a very special man that we all loved here at the hospital.

You and your family are in my prayers.

Like your dad once said; "It's like being in GOD's back pocket"

GOD bless you all..
