I was sad when David was appointed to a church outside of the South West District. David was a very special person in the SW District in the Florida Conference and on all the district committees he served. He had a heart as big as Texas. Our district office closed at 4:30pm daily but if the phone rang at 4:25pm we knew it was David. We miss his 4:25pm calls. David - Well Done Good and Faithful Servant!
