Bro. David was one of the kindest men I have ever known - he was always smiling and I never knew a time I didn't see him at church - until this Sunday and it was just not the same not seeing him there in the back with the ushers and in Sunday School Class. My husband Shannon and I were unable to attend the memorial service due to work - but we would like the family to know how much we loved and respected Bro. David - and that we will be praying for Renee and all the family as they try to find a new normal to their lives. One thing we all know for sure is that David is in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ.
