Drummond, Connie, and Adam,
I was shocked to hear of David"s passing. Adam told me how much he was enjoying NHC. I think about all the neighborhood fun we had and was glad to call him a friend. He was fortunate to have such wonderful siblings that stuck together and always looked out for each other. I know you will miss him greatly, but I'm sure you take comfort in knowing that he is once again with your mom and dad. My prayers are with all of you.

David was a remarkable man, funny, caring and a brilliant conversationalist. I learned so much from being around him if only during brief visits. Rest in peace friend. You will never be in want again.
