David was a good kid. I vividly remember him kickin butt in video games, and always involved in our pick up basketball games, which were the greatest times. Prayers to family.

Just a beautiful life that was taken to early. Always loved conversations with him at Maria's with my brother Chuck. Two people that share a very special place in the hearts of our little community. May your wings carry and guide you high above to watch over us. Prayers and thoughts on this sad time.
