Dear Wendy and Family;

David will be missed by all who knew him....he was a "one in a million guy". I never ever saw him without a smile on his face and a kind word with his greeting.

May God bless you and hold you in His loving arms. May your heart be filled with all the precious memories which you shared through your lives together.
