One of my funniest memories of David occurred when he was about 2 or 3. He followed his brothers down the street. Somewhere along the way, he got a dirty diaper. He took it off and was holding it by the corner, walking up Rosewood St. with poop from head to toe, crying. I can still hear Mrs. Morton in my mind on the front porch hollering in her wonderful North Carolina accent, "David Morton, get in this hooose!"
I always admired David. He was a trooper. I remember a few years ago sitting on the driveway talking to him. I asked him if he was ever worried about dying when he had cancer. He looked at me and said it never occurred to him that he might not survive it. I think part of the reason he lived is because he expected to!
He went through a lot, but I never heard him complain. I have told his story to many over the years. I will certainly miss him. I know Jesus and his father, my mom, dad, Karen and Bill were at heaven's gate to greet him
Mrs. Morton, Schley, Jimmy and Kenneth, I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved son and brother. But, I am so happy he was here for 56 years!
