Rick, it is with deep sadness that I am sending you & your family my deepest condolences for your beloved David. I will never ever forget him & the love we all had for him. I cannot think of another brother that loved & cared for anyone the way you did for him. You gave him so much love & your devotion everyday. He was such an easy little fella to love & to be around. He was the smartest & quick thinking when it came to music & songs, he knew everything about them. I surely will miss this & his jokes. He definitely made my day a whole lot brighter. You 3 Musketeers (you, Dave & Bill) always gave me a hard time, but I always knew it was all for fun. Heaven sure got a good one & I know he's already up there singing & happy to be reunited with all of his loved ones. I will just miss him.
