Dear Cucura Family:
I (Mr. Frank) would like to extend my deepest condolences on David's passing. I remember David in Mr. Joyce's class at Mid Valley High School. I would service David's class twice a week. David was always friendly, cooperative and obedient in class. He was a joy to be around, always pleasant and smiling. I remember visiting David at the Shriners Hospital in Philadelphia. He was so happy and proud to see me. He had to introduce me to all the nurses
and staff that his teacher came to visit him while in the hospital. To say he was elated is an understatement. He was thrilled beyond words. I have never forgotten that moment. He was a very sweet boy when I met him at MVHS. I am sure he remiained that way as an adult. I hope you all find peace, love and comfort among family and friends during these sad and trying times. May David rest in peace in God's hands and above all CHERISH HIS MEMORY. Mr. Frank

I would see David at the hospital when his mother would bring him for blood work. He would kiss my hand and tell me he was going to marry him. With those twinkling eyes and beautiful smile he was a character. I have a special needs child that David knew and he would always ask how he was doing. David, you fought the fight and I hope and pray that you are at peace. Colleen and family, may all you need to overcome your loss be yours. Rock the heavens David with the ladies and a beer. God bless you!
