To the entire Trucios Family, I am so sorry for your loss which was way too soon. David's smile could brighten any room and I couldn't have asked for a better neighbor to grow up behind in Wantagh. So many fun memories every time we hopped the fence! I send my thoughts and prayers to you all.

My dear Anne, children and family, Losing a child, no matter at what age, has to be the most painful thing for any mother; and I hold you in my heart with deepest sympathy and sorrow. Even though I have never met David, the video of his life has given me a portrait of the kind of person he was, and I know that your love and pride in him must have been great. His love, in return, for his family and life, was very obvious. You will be in my prayers,
dear Anne, knowing that our Lord and Savior will be with you, as well as the support and prayers of all your family and friends.
