Sorry to learn of David's passing. My family & I lived in the same neighborhood, but only knew LaWanda & David. David worked at the San Ann Service Station which was just down the road behind it from our house. I've been in SE GA for almost 50 years & have lost touch with a lot of the ones I knew. David was a very sweet guy & I know he will be missed by many. My thoughts & prayers are with all of his family & friends.
