Mary, we were truly blessed that God answered our prayers, giving David more time with us. It broke our hearts to hear of his passing. Our church family loved his guitar pickin and singing. His jokes, smile, and elbow bumps will be sorely missed. We're comforted knowing we'll see him again. God bless you and your family during this time of sorrow. We love you!
