Diane and family. I am so very sad to hear of David's passing. It brings back many fond memories of our times spent together as kids. He would be happy exploring the country side and looking for groundhogs and I would think I was in NY city riding a tricycle around the block at Clementine Sq. The last time I saw him was at his father's funeral and he gave me one of his big bear hugs, grinning from ear to ear and a kiss on the forehead. We chatted about all the wonderful memories we had as kids and had a few laughs. I will always remember his big smile (grin) when being mischevious. Our birthdays were only a month apart. I happen to come across this photo and thought I would share it. David holding his little baby brother Paul with my sister Betty Anne and I posing on the couch. We were 5 years old. May God give you strength and comfort at this very difficult time. David will always be remembered in the hearts of all who were blessed to know him. Love Mary Lou & Charlie Finnegan email:
