I am so very sorry for the loss of this old friend. David and I met in Jr. High, and our friendship went on for years. With his move to NY are communication was less and less. I have missed him and shall miss him always. Praying for comfort and peace for his family.

Dear Wilma, we are sorry for your loss. We have the happiest memories of our two families traveling together. The adventures David would take Michele and I on and no one made us laugh like David did. Know you are in our thoughts and prayers.

Dear Mrs. Smith,
You raised a fine man who was my friend for 30 years. We met when his father died. How he loved you both! Then we worked together in Brooklyn. He donated his tips to my coyage to Canada on my last night there. He was an extraordinary person. I will love him always--one of thousands touched by his intelligence and kindness.

Mrs. Smith,

If I may for this Mrs. Sheets, thank you for all those years in elementary school when you let me come over to your house before school and at lunch. David and I were very good friends as you will remember. Mass transit and moving to New York were two things David often spoke about. May God comfort You and your Family at this time. Thanks for those years David! Godspeed my Friend!
