I will miss David very much!! We have lived next door to each other for over 36 years. I have too many memories to post here. He was a very nice, quiet football fan. When I hung up my Tennessee flag each fall, he would call and thank me for hanging his Texas flag. I’ll miss you and Lea and I will try to take care of each other!
