Uncle David, you provided me so many fond memories, especially during my childhood and at our family reunions as Gypsy Hill Park every summer. It was comforting to share the same "Layne gap" between our upper front teeth with someone! You are much loved and all of your family here miss you. Hoping your are reuniting with passed loved ones now. God Bless!
