Dear Sweet Kathryn and family,
We are so sorry about the loss of David. Through all the years I can remember David was at the Gaw Christmas parties and reunions. Always cheerful with a smile on his face. He was welcoming and kind. Kathryn-you and David were such good examples of love and marriage to the younger ones for fifty years. Thank you for that! Though David is not with us he is not far, and I'm sure watching over you. I wish I could be there Thursday , but I will be in spirit. Please give my condolences to all the Barrow and Gaw families. You are all and will be in my prayers. Love you all so much!! Brenda Gaw Andrews and family.

Our condolences go out to David's family at this difficult time. David was a good friend to my family, especially my mother and sister, for many years. He will be sorely missed by both family and friends. Even though he is no longer with us on Earth, we can all take comfort in knowing that David has received a warm welcome in Heaven as he takes his place on the risers and joins the ultimate chorus.
