I worked as assistant secretary at Calvary Baptist Church and also attended there. David was the kindest man I knew. He would always lend a helping hand any way he could and always served his church. Sweet man, he will be missed! My condolences to the family. You will be in my prayers!

I WISH TO EXTEND MY DEEPEST SYMPATHY TO THE FAMILY AND PRAY FOR COMFORT. I HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF MEETING BUD WHEN I PLAYED PONY LEAGUE AND HE WAS MY COACH. WHAT AN EXAMPLE OF A CHRISTIAN MAN, THAT TAUGHT ME A LOT MORE ABOUT LIFE THAN JUST BASEBALL.
