Janet my sincerest condolences to you and your family. David and I went all through school together, were in Boy Scouts together awhile, played baseball and basketball together and played football on the lawns in Bemis. All those memories I have always cherished of David and will continue too.
David was a good man & a friend to all that knew him.
RIP my friend.

I am so sorry for y'all's loss. David was a wonderful husband, father, provider. I loved him dearly. He accepted me as one of Janet's own. He was a fun person, always smiling. You will forever be missed. Now you really can jump over the moon. 🌛

Little did Watson know back in 1988 that when he picked Janet - we all came along as a package deal. Fortunately, he blended right in with us. We were all fortunate to have him join the family . His presence will be missed but the memories cherished. Loves and hugs to you all.
