At the service the chaplain talked about Mr David being a hero. He's every bit a hero in my book. In 2002 he saved my youngest son from drowning. He would not be here today if Mr David was not in the right place at the right time. He was a wonderful man with a huge heart for helping people. A true HERO!

You’ll forever be missed!!!!
