David you are an amazing person! You are definitely one of the few that has left a lasting impression on me. You are genuinely kind, humble and an extremely hard worker. I can honestly say the world needs more people like you.

My dearest cousin, I am heartbroken that you are gone. All our lives were touched by your laughter, joyful spirit, and willingness to help. I remember the times we used to get in some kind of bind and people would help us out, and our folks never knew what happened. I remember when we were kids tying towels around our neck, zooming around my daddy's yard, pretending to be super heros. What fun we had. Words cannot express how much I will miss you.

This is a hard one, and Im sorry David it take a while to write it hasn't dawn on me yet because you are still with me so there will be no RIP for me but only good joking memories... I meet David at his new job at Aetna, and instantly I know he was one of a kind something special God created. He was automatically a family member to our group at the building. So easy to talk to, and glad to help out. I love most of all he was a joker, with a hit of spice ( I laugh when I'm say this because he would tell you a few bad words on his mind , and turn around and be so sweet and professional. If only I could stayed longer on the phone with him Friday, If I knew that would be the last time we talk. It hurt the most because it was so short, I'm bless that he give us 7 months of knowing you, and laughing with a special person. Till this day I look for your cars in the parking lot when I make it to work every morning. I will remember you like everyone else.. You enter the the lobby with that big smile saying ''what's up girl! or top flight security.. Miss you dear friend! MY Deepest condolences to the Rodriguez Family and Friends...

I went to grade school with David at Holy Trinity and always remember him as being one of the class cut ups. Mrs. Rodriguez worked in the kitchen and was one of the sweetest ladies, she had such a beautiful smile. Lately a lot of Holy Trinity classmates of David have been wondering what happened to the classmates who were with us for a while but did not graduate with us, and David was one who we wondered about.
I am very sorry to hear that David passed away and so young too. I send my sincere condolences to his Mom and family and I will keep you all in my prayers.

I knew David from work and he left an imprint in our hearts. He was an amazing person, always helpful, and optimistic. Everyone that I have spoken to from work agrees that he will be missed and that he will be remembered in our hearts not only for doing an amazing job but for the incredible being that he was. I am grateful that I got to meet him. He will continue to be the light that he is.

David was a generous, giving man that loved his family. He was always proud of his sons and I saw so many times he shined as a Dad. Our Family will always love and appreciate you and remember you fondly.
