Not sure what to say?

Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. May (1 Thessalonians 4:14) bring you some comfort in knowing that there is a future for the ones we have lost in death. May the God of all comfort strengthen your family during this time of deep sorrow.

David was an exceptional god father and I will never forget the stories he used to tell and the beautiful gifts he used to send me.

He was such a charismatic man and I can only say that I'm gutted I didn't see him more.
I will always remember his story telling capabilities and charisma.

Love, Josephine Hill.

Very sad to hear this news . David was an exceptional story teller and correspondent .
It was lovely to have a meal with David and Sheila in Athens -and to have him stay in Cheddar shortly before .
Bob Sinkinson was regaining me with tales of the hacks on the road last night - including staying in a hotel in the middle of nowhere that just happened to have a great cellar !
David will be especially missed by his God daughter Josephine .
Is there any memorial in the UK ?...

David was a Churchill Fellow when he resided in Plymouth, Devon, England and was a much respected journalist.
