WOW, I don't know where to start, because I still expect you to walk to the second floor. So many things that I wish I had said to you. I was trying to find a perfect time to say thank you and how much I appricated you for what you did for me. I will never forget my first week at OSSP where I become a grandmother and you send me back to the hospital to be with my daughter and my first grandchild, where you use to come every day to check on me because you knew I am not the type of person to sit still. Oh, how about the Falcon and the Atlanta United game with your OSSP crew and family? How about when I shaved my head and we had the same style bold for a while that was fun. My favorite is when I use to call you Dr. Miller and one day you laugh and smiled and you said I am just David he is Doc and pointed at Dr. Oskouei. How I miss our long conversations at the game as I bring your mixed drinks and thinking Mrs. Miller (Cindy) was going to get me one day. Then when I left the game, I thought I had lost the family that I had become attached to but yet we met again. So this is not goodbye this is to say until next time.

Sweet David,
I am so grateful to have known such an incredible welcoming individual.
You made a big impact in my life, you always believed in me.
I know I am made you disappointed but you were there to believe in me to improve my work ethic, now I know better and will continue to always be better and work hard.
The only person I’ve met that took his time to meet all his employees.
You are extremely loved and I know you will be watching down on all of us, smiling.
That bright smile that made everyone else smile, my last conversation with you was a joke, you always enjoyed making someone laugh. You will always have a special place in my heart 🕊
Unit we meet again.

I am so saddened and shocked by the news of David’s passing. David was a great man and a good friend. He always wore a big smile, was courteous to all and I will never forget his wonderful laugh. I will miss him very much.

I wish you Cindy and all of your friends and family members all of the support and love you need during this difficult time.

David, my heart sank when I learned of your passing. I remember many good times we had at MAG Mutual. You were so kind and always made a point to speak when you passed my office. Your support during the MAG years was always appreciated. Rest in peace and many prayers to your family. You spoke of them often and it was very clear you loved them dearly.

It has been decades since I have seen (Uncle) Dave. I grew up a friend of Carrie’s. I always felt welcome in their home and I will always remember being treated like family there. Dave was a wonderful man and a doting father. I know he will be missed greatly, but I hope your fond memories of him comfort you in your time of grief.
Much love, from my family and I

David, I am so happy we got reconnected. So great to have dinner with you and Art. I loved our time together in college at UTM, our REO Speedwagon concert, your trip to Chicago with your parents for the restaurant shows. Our very nice dinner at Nick's Fishmarket with your Mom and Dad and so many memories at school.

I know you are living your best life, you have seen the face of Jesus.
Welcome home thy good and faithful servant.

David, thank you for being a great leader to us. Thank you for caring enough to get to know us and talking to us every day, even when you’d be in a rush you always took your time to say hello and joke around with us. You have no idea how much we appreciated that and how much it meant to us. You are gone too soon but we will never forget you. We appreciate the little memories you made with us.. you will be greatly missed and donuts on Friday will not be the same without you.. May you Rest In Peace David, you were a great man and an exceptional leader.
