To the family, I'm very sorry for David loss. In the 10 years I've been at Cargo Transporters I've know David to be a very nice guy. I always told him how much I appreciated him keeping the ladies room so clean. I saw how hard he worked and appreciated all he done. David will be missed. Our Prayers go out to your family. Sincerely, Jake& Pamela Nichols.

Please accept my sincerest condolences and sympathy. It was an honor to work with David. He was always so kind and helpful; and I always enjoyed talking with him about rocks, and pottery, etc. He will be missed by so many. May you find comfort and peace during this sad time.
