I always think of David Wayne as a precocious little kid playing around Chester St. and Pythian Park. I will never forget the time his cute little neighbor walked up to him and said in the most Southern drawl “ David Wayne..you wanna come over to my house and eat a piece a pie?” He was so embarrassed because we all laughed. He was all snakes and snails and puppy dog tails back then . I lost track of the Gilstraps when we all grew up but thankfully reconnected with David Wayne via Facebook the last few years.
Glad he is no longer in pain and I hope his friends and family find comfort in memories of him.

I will miss my baby brother very much, even though he could talk you're ear off on the phone. I was 15 when you were born and helped Mom with you the first four years of your life. First time I met Van in church he thought you were mine instead of my brother. I still cannot believe you are gone but I know you are in heaven with Scott, Mom and Dad/ You will be missed by many and especially by Katie. She says this is very sad and checks to see if I am OK. RIP and we will meet again one day. Love you and miss you.

My thoughts and my prayers go out to all of David Wayne's family. David Wayne and I grew up together in Park Hills. We reconnected on fb 7 years ago and was as if we never had any time apart some friends are just special in that way and he certainly was!! I will miss our talks so very much but I know where his heart has been for many years now and that is with Skeet and TBird and Butch, so I know how happy he must be to be reunited with them. Rest easy my dear sweet friend and be happy ! With all my love , Tina ❤
