It's difficult to get you outta my head & you'll always be in my heart.
The Love, Laughter, & memories I'll always cherish.

Rest in peace my friend!

I met Dave at work year’s ago. He was a sweetheart and as others mentioned he did have a special smile. One of the things I do know of Dave was how much he loved his kids Lisa and David. They had a close Bond. They always had each other’s back in the best way. Dave was a great father and not by choice also a great mother after they lost their mother. I am so sorry for your lost Lisa, David , beautiful granddaughter, other family members and friends. My thoughts are with you.

David, you meant everything to me. You showed me love I never felt before and never will again. You showed me how to live again and laugh. I hadn’t laughed in so long. Baby, I really did have the time of my life with you and I know how rare that is. I was strong with you by my side and with you gone I feel so empty and weak. I sit and wait for your texts and they don’t come. I walk aimless around looking for you. I miss you more than you will know. I’m not sure if I am strong enough to come Saturday and I’m not ready to say goodbye and let you go. I think of the future we planned that will no longer be. I’m angry, sad, defeated and everything in between. I love you, baby. Don’t forget to come get me someday. Saturday is for your family and I don’t want to take that from them. I can’t get over losing you and I miss you so much I’m physically sick over it. I know I promised to make you proud but I don’t think I can do it without you. I love you, Danyel

I met David many years ago when I managed BP. He was always one of my favorite customers. There was always a smile on his face and such a good sence of humor, he loved showing off his beautiful baby daughter. I wouldn't know until many years later when I met Lisa and he was with her that, that was Lisa in that carrier. He had such a zest for life and an infetious smile. God always takes the good ones from us too soon. As Vince Gill wrote: His work on this Earth is done. So go Rest High Upon That Mountain with the Father and The Son. God Bless you David you are an Angel now. We will see you again. Rest in peace.
