David and my late husband, Neil, were best of friends. We spent many evenings with him and Marilyn playing euchre at each other’s houses. We had such fun laughing with each other. David and Neil built sheds, tool benches, remodeled garages and bathrooms. We watched each other’s kids grow up and become successful and amazing adults. He will truly be missed but now he and Neil can be together again and share a beer ! Rest easy my friend ❤️
