I miss you daddy

David was a lifelong and very dear friend of my husband, Greg. I remember when David would come visit, he was always color coordinated from his hat to his shoes as he entered our home with a big smile on his face with gleam in his eyes. Each time he left he always gave Greg a bear hug and told him he loved him. He related many stories of how proud he was of his children from the day they were born and into adulthood. He was especially proud of his grandchildren, and we were privileged to hear about their choir performances, school programs, athletic activities and love of the Lord. He is greatly missed. I can only imagine the radiance upon his face as he was welcomed by his loving family members and friends who have gone before him. Linda Haynes (Nederland TX)

My deepest condolences to the family for your loss.I played baseball against David at the YMCA Little League over 50 years ago. He was a great athlete- but more importantly a wonderful person. In high school he always had a smile and an impish comment. It is no surprise he was a treasured grandparent. Although , I had not seen him in many years his memory is a cherished one.
