David was my dearest and best friend ever! I met David October 17th, 5 years ago and knew then this was the guy for me. He was always around me and Colton. He never met a stranger no matter where we went he always carried on a conversation with people like he knew them. He was there for anyone who called and/or anything that needed to be done. Colton and I have SO many memories we will cherish forever. I thank God Colton and I had the pleasure to have known such an awesome man. We miss YOU already but will never forget having known you. We love you babe now you can RIP
