My dear friend Isabel,

Words can't express how sorry I'm for your loss of your child David. Our kids, in the mother's eyes, will always be a child. Doesn't matter how old they are. Lost this beautiful human been is truly a loss. For his wife, children, family, friends, and especially for you and your spouse.

Your Son David will live throughout your memories, his wife, those beautiful children, and all those who love him forever.

I lose so many dear families in recent years, and my consolation was in the book of Revelation, Chapter 21 verse 4:" 'He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."

My dear friend, my warrior, co-worker, my heart, and prayers are with you and your family on this dark hour. May God and his Angels carry him to the highest place in Heaven.

Love you,

Where to start...David I still can't believe you're no longer here. I have so may memories w/ Pris & you. You were like my little brother that I could talk junk to & you always something goofy to say. I am so thankful you were a huge part of my bff's life. She loves you & I could see how much you loved her. You made her the happiest woman & you were a great father to Isaiah, Jr, Giovanni, Kataleya & Kateyana & for that I will always be thankful to you. You truly completed her. You will be dearly missed. Wish there would have been more time to make more memories. But God's plans are not ours & He's called you to His presence. We will forever have you in our hearts. This isn't a goodbye, it's a see you later little brother.
❤Dora & Jose Ramos❤

My dear friend, there are many memories I can think of about you and I. Many of which are, attending medical school with one another, going shopping with you and your beautiful family, or even staying up late almost every night playing our favorite video games. The one memory that always stuck with me the most was when David and I were playing a pickup basketball game along with other of his close friends. The game was tied and we had possession of the ball, I called David for a screen, you know the old fashion pick and roll. When he set the screen, I immediately yelled out “roll” to let him know the lane was open for a game winning lay up. As soon as he turned around to drive to the basket, my friend David casually walked with his hands on his waist in exhaustion while I passed him the ball without knowing, the ball bounced off his back and we lost the game. While laughing, I asked him “What happened?” He replied “Sorry man I was tired” followed by his contagious wheezing laugh. But in that exact moment in my heart I won, because of how blessed and fortunate I am to have a friend like David. May you rest in the highest level of peace, you’re not hurting anymore brother but the family and friends you have down here are more than ever. Please give them comfort knowing you will always be right beside them. One love, always and forever.

A Memory of David was when I first met him, when we had a class while attending college.. His smile bright the whole room. You can tell he was a kind and loving person. It was always a good day when he was there. I didn't personally knew him but I felt like I did knew him forever beacuse Priscilla always talked so nice and would be so proud of the Husband and Father he was. I am beyond broken to know he is gone and My Bestie Priscilla and his family going through this pain.. Rest in Peace David😔💕

I’m glad to have met you and worked with you the few times at work. I could tell you were someone who would always treat others how you would expect your family or friends to be treated. We will pray for you and your family. God Bless you David, and God Bless Priscilla and the kids.

David was a very special man who will be sorely missed by all who knew him. I knew David as a student in many of my classes. As instructors we are not supposed to have favorite students but David made it very hard to abide by that rule. His cheerful friendly personality would stand out in every class. He took that same wonderful personality out into the medical field once he graduated. His co-workers and patients also loved his upbeat caring personality.
David I feel blessed to have known you.

David was such a precious soul. I will never forget the jokes he would crack unexpectedly. He could shock you. I thought he was so quiet when he first started school. Found out he wasn’t ❤️ He will be so deeply missed. He has left a legacy through his children who are such wonderful little humans. May GOD give you comfort at this tough time. 🙏
