I was friends with David for 20 years. I rode with him and Patty both and David as recently as a few days prior to this devastating event. He would text me every morning because he knew it irritated me at 5:30am. I hadn't heard from him so I was texting and calling with no reply which was not like him at all. I had a bad feeling and I'm truly saddened to finally hear this. My deepest sympathy to his parents and siblings. I would like to speak with his sister if at all possible. I can be reached at 561 236 3164. Thank you and Godspeed my dear friend until we meet again.
