Sheila, Cindy and Family , Sending my condolences and prayers for comfort. I always remember David and my brother Rick hanging out at the house and going fishing together when they were growing up. He was always joking around and having fun! I always think that stands out about him. What a great guy! Thinking of you and your family during this difficult time.
