We do not know each other but my daughter Brianna knew your son. My daughter left haslett in January and when I told her the morning after I heard of your sons passing she was in shock. She has told me about your son in classes they had together and how he helped her in the hallway when she had a mishap with her coffee. She still can't believe he is gone. As a mother I can not imagine the pain you are in right now and I just wanted to reach out and tell you and your family how truelly sorry I am for your loss. You and your family will continue to be in our thoughts.

With a heavy heart I am writing this note to you.. We have never met but you have met my daughter Divira who was a close friend of David.
I had never met David either formally but had seen him sometimes in the school and had heard so much about him from Divira that he was as close to us as well.
That horrible night when we got the news about David, all night long , Divira and I hoped and prayed that this was some rumor and by the time sun will come up , all will be well and same again.
But it was not to be .. we were all just shocked…. I feel your pain It has been hard for the entire community to accept and make sense of why we lost a precious boy. Just wanted to reach out and let you know that I and my family are here for you and your family. That, David was an amazing soul.. so compassionate and kind , because he has such great parents.

David and his smile will stay in our memories forever.

My husband Rajit, daughter Divira, Son Nitish , join me in expressing sincere condolences to you and your family and will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers. Hugs!!!

I am shocked and saddened to read that David
has passed. I worked as his “lunch lady” in his elementary years.
David always wore a big smile on his face! He was a very polite young man that said please and thank you automatically. When I would see him at events outside of lunch he would wave and say hello. He truly was a joy to serve!
When you work with hundreds of children a day year after year, you don’t always remember all of their first and last names. (Which many times is a good thing) With David, I remember his smiling face, his kind heart and his joy filled personality. He stood out as one of the really good ones!
I consider myself blessed to have worked with so many wonderful young people in my years at Haslett. I have no doubt that losing David has left a big hole in the hearts of many. My thoughts and my prayers are with David’s family and his many friends in Haslett. Heaven gained someone very special! Rest Peacefully David. You left a big mark on earth in the short time you were here!

I will never forget the 1st time I met David. He came to my house with my Grand-daughter Abbi, I learned just from the 1st meeting what a respectable and caring young man he was. There wasn't a time after that he had a smile on his face :) The last time I seen David was at my 1year old Grand-daughter Emma Jeans birthday party. He helped decorate, clean up and carry things out to the van. His Mom and Dad did such an "AMAZING" job raising him to be the Honest, caring and Loving young man that he was <3 David you will be Missed and Loved and will always have a special place in our Hearts <3

David, you were such an amazing friend who always made me laugh and smile. I loved snapchatting and talking to you every single day and it breaks my heart not to have contact with you anymore. You had nothing but love and good vibes to spread wherever you were. I wish we were able to spend more time together but I will never ever forget you and I know you will always be watching over all of us😇❤️ I know Gracie misses you and will give her huge hugs and lots of love whenever I get the chance❤️❤️ Rest In Peace David🙏🏼
