Our thoughts and prayers are with the family with this loss.  There are a lot of memories of David, his siblings and his parents from the Highland Ave. days during my younger years.  More memories growing  up in Aberdeen as we grew older.   His children were close in age to our children.....memories there as well.  God be with them all during this time.

Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.
