Jerry and I were both blessed to have known David. Jerry relied on him for feedback in Sunday School on many occasions. He was such a wonderful man of God! Our love and prayers are extended to each of you.

I remember David as a good Christian friend and servant. Always kind in his words to everyone, he was the first to want to shake your hand. He led a servants life setting an example for me and I'm sure others. I know where David is now and can't wait to see him down the road. May God always bless your memory in mine and others mind. Farewell ole friend but not goodbye.
