David lived across from me at St Joseph Place. We met at the dinner table July 29, 2019, my first day living there. We quickly became best friends. He made my living there so much easier. We would sit and talk and laugh about many things but each time we would usually end up talking about Jesus Christ our Savior. We shared a deep love for our Savior. I miss our talks so much.

After dinner I would wheel over to his room and say, "let's go David". He would say, "for ice cream? " "yes ice cream". We would then head for the kitchen talking with all the nurses on the way there and back.

The memory and love for David will always be in my heart and I look forward to the day I leave this world and see David again and I can praise the Lord with him.
