Seems like such a really odd memory to hold, yet I was a little girl and let's just say there were some family stuff going on. David was there and all "adults" were outside doing there thing.
He was the oldest among us kids. Maybe 16 or 17? He made all of us go to back room and spoke so calmly and in charge yet I remember I knew he was scared and doing everything he could to keep us calm. At one point he told us if we heard any loud noise we should "hit the floor". I know it's a wierd momory to have and yet all these years later it says so much about him.
