David was very inspiring with his always positive attitude. We came to love David as a part of our church family. I will miss greeting him and talking with him on Sunday morning. He truly made an impact on me by proving that believing in the Lord the way that he did made each day a joyous gift no matter what you were facing or going through. Our hearts and prayers go out to Janice and his family.

A wonderful and smart man with a heart of gold. I will always remember the love and kindness he showed to my family especially in my time of need and confusion. Dave was a wonderful loving man that I will respect and remember always.

Janice you are a lucky woman to have known such a great man. I miss you both and hope to get to see you soon.
