Donna and Joey I'm so sorry and I don't have the words to express how I really feel, y'all are family to me and David was like a brother, one of the kindest most loyal friends any person could have, friends for 38 years back to when he, Hal and myself were a part of the H.O.T. card collectors and David was only 10 but he knew his stuff. My condolences you and the rest of the family. Love y'all.
