To the family of David Avila,

I didn't personally know him, but I did watch the video of him during the viewing on Thursday as we (me & the Spirit of God that I've been blessed, by His grace, to dwell within me), came to show support for my co- worker Marcos & you all, his family !!! David appeared to be the life of the party kind of guy !!! It seems that everybody that was around him, loved to be around him & enjoyed themselves while they were in his presence !!! I send my thoughts & a piece of my heart (the heart that Jesus has given me to love), to you all & pray that He (Jesus) sends down some heavenly comfort from above, not only for your sorrows, but for your bodies & for your souls as well !!! As He can do anything, I pray these things in His precious Name, AMEN !!! May He bless us all !!! I don't know you all, but because of the love that Jesus has shared with me, I love you all !!! Blessings !!!
❤❤❤

I was so sorry to hear about David's passing. I had the pleasure of working with him at our Houston office and spending time during a few lunch hours. He was funny, smart and a joy to be around. It was a privilege to know David. Wishing his family blessings and comfort during this time.

I worked with David downtown. He always had a great outlook for the day and made the workplace have a smile.
