My heartfelt condolences to the family on the loss of dear David. He was a kind, friendly soul who enjoyed family, friends, Jesus and fish! Somewhere in heaven is a comfortable fishing spot with his name on it and he's pulling fish from it and is basking in the glow of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Dave will be missed. Blessings to you.
