I didn’t get to work with David for very long but the time I did have with him will forever be etched into my heart. He loved to talk about the birds and the airplanes when we would sit outside. He loved to eat apples and when he was finished he would through it across the room. David was such a bright spot in so many lives and he will forever be missed. I am truly thankful I was given that time with David as one of his caregivers. Thank you.

I worked with David many years ago at Shroyer House with MARC Center. David was a wonderful person. I remember how much he loved music and singing...we sang many songs together while listening to the radio.
