David and Family. I was so sadden to read of your dad's passing. I lived beside your parents on Summit Road in High Point and loved them both so much. Your mom greeted our family with a lemon pie when we moved in to our home and later gave me her recipe. That lemon pie is my family's all time favoriate. I never fix that pie that I don't think of your sweet mother. My prayers are with your family. Joan Bain

David and family, I am sorry to hear of you dad's passing. I was a neighborhood kid living on Meadowbrook and you lived across the street from my grandparents on Harrison. We use to play ball with the other neighborhood guys. Been a long time. I pray the love of Jesus will sustain you in your loss. God bless!
