My most precious David,
You were one of the most wonderful gifts that God placed on this earth. I loved you more than life itself. I miss your spaking eyes, big smile, giant bear hugs, and soft low "I love you mommy". The hole you left behind can never be filled. You were the greatest friend, brother and son. No one could have asked for more. I hope you have found peace.
I love you and miss you.

Yarbrough family,
I know you through the heart of your mother, mother-in-law and grandmother, Dottie Meers. I feel that I know your family as if you were one of my church family members. Dottie's stories of her visits and her grandsons have been stories that are filled with love and fun. My heart hurts for you and I am sorry that you are having to feel this time of undescribable pain. I am praying for your comfort and peace. Love to all of you from my family here in Bardstown.
