    Rhonda, My prayers are with you at this time. David was one of my customers at Bank of America. He was always so nice and had a wonderful smile. I know you will miss him, but God knows all and he wanted to give him rest. God bless you and your family. Peggy Phillips at that time.

    Your Husband, your father or your grandfather was one of the nicest guys in high school. If you were having a bad day, you just needed to be around David and it was all fixed. I celebrate with you David's new eternal life as a loving classmate and friend.
