I am so blessed to have had an Uncle like you. I will always remember your smile and of course your laugh! You were the sweetest person I've ever known and so full of love. I'm so happy you got to meet my son Daniel back in December. Seeing yall play together made my heart happy. I'm very sad you won't get to meet our new baby Russell but I'm honored to name him after you. Both my boys will know about their Great Uncle David. We all love you so much and we will miss you. Love- David, Erin, Daniel, & Russell Hill♡

My Uncle David was one of my favorite people. Trips up to Ft. Worth with my family were always special because I knew I’d get to see my Uncle David and get the biggest hug and best laugh around because he was so happy we came to visit. I always knew I’d see him on the front porch in his flannel shirt and blue jeans with a big belt buckle. He was always so happy and loving and I couldn’t ask for a better uncle. I will always love him and remember him that way. I’m lucky to have known him and been loved by him.

All the love to you brother! You're the only person I have ever met who met life with such simple joy! From listening to your 45s and sharing with me, to getting your license and then getting your little truck. The joy that you would get out of some of the things we take for granted has always been a light. Even in your darkest days, you met everyone with love and humility. You were an awesome uncle and the kids and grandkids have surely been blessed getting to spend time with you. These are things that I will remember most about you; we should all strive to be more like you, David! Thank you for welcoming me into your family 31 years ago and remaining my brother-in-law all of these years. You will be missed! Love you forever, Roni Mathis
