I am so sorry to hear about the passing of David. He was such a kind man, with a great voice and a big heart! As others have mentioned, I met David through the love of his life Lynn, about 20 years ago and we had many fond times and memories spending time together. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers at this very difficult time!
