Some people come into your life and quickly go.
Others leave Footprints on Your Heart Forever.
Lil' Dave is one of those people. He will always have my respect, my ear, and my shoulder to cry on.

He always had 'my back', and now follows as my Personal Angel.
I am blessed to have known him as The Man He Was.
Through his love & caring, I am a better person.

May The Lord carry him High, and Bless his Soul. We'll all see him on The Other Side.
Miss him, but Let Him Go. Loved him, and you are blessed. Peace & Luv My Friend, Aunt Andie.

I will never forget the first day we met or the last time I got to hug you and see you smile. I will forever cherish our time together.
“I will carry your heart with me forever. I will carry it with mine so we are never apart.” 🖤
Love always, Katie

Love, Aunt Janet
