Mr. Naydock, Lisa nd Michael, I was saddened to hear about David's passing. I know this is quite late, but my Dad just sent me the program from his memorial service in a card today. I used to live next door, and remember hanging out in your basement after school with Lisa, Michael and Dave watching Dark Shadows on TV. Dave was always drawing something even back then. I remember his work being quite impressive for someone so young. You have my heartfelt sympathy. Love, Cindi (Porczak) Whittington

Dave's greatest attributes were not his talents as an artist, but his attitude and great nature as a person. He was always positive, thoughtful, knowledgable and an overall fantastic spirit. The Koury family will always cherish Dave. Our condolences to the Naydock Family and of course Lorraine.
