To the family of David,

David was a gifted and outgoing person. He would always have a smile and he loved to tell jokes. We attended high-school together in the School of Communications at Yates. I will always cherish his style (he always dressed nice) and his simple, but realistic approach to life.

To the family he leaves behind to cherish his memories, I pray GOD grants you all peace during this season. David is going to truly, be missed.

May GOD continue to keep you all, wrapped in his loving arms.
