Oh I just always will remember that sweet Southern voice on the intercom at school. Such a sweet, welcoming person that made my first year at the school so easy!

DAVID WAS ONE OF MY BEST FRIENDS IN HIGH SCHOOL. HE MARRIED HIS BESTEST FRIEND, BARBARA HODGES.
THAT MAKES US ALL GOOD FRIENDS.
BARBARA AND DAVID SHARED MANY THINGS (FAMILY, WORK AND HOBBIES) AND WERE AN IDEAL COUPLE.
WHEN I THINK OF A MISSING PERSON, I TRY TO BRING TO MY MIND THE GREAT THINGS WE ENJOYED HERE ON EARTH.
DAVID HAS MANY GREAT MEMORIES AND I PRAY HIS CHILDREN AND FAMILY HELP HIM THROUGH THIS TOUGH STRETCH.
WE SEND OUR LOVE TO YOU.

I was a Science Teacher at LWMS and always enjoyed her company when helping me chaperoning field trips. I always enjoyed her stories about hunting Florida critters and the recipes she created after the hunt! Lovely and dear lady. Prayers to everyone. She will be missed.

Barbara and I shared many years together teaching children with real life experiences beyond their years. She was always there for us. We counted on her and she always rose to the occasion never knowing from minute to minute what that occasion may be. I counted on her. She will remain in my heart ❤️
