    I did not know David but am a friend of his cousin Sharon, who loved him dearly. It is so difficult to lose someone who was part of your life every single day. Condolences to Sharon and all David's family and friends.

    I was in the hospital this past Monday thru Wednesday... during that time I reached vout for prayer thru Facebook. David was one of the first to say "im on it". I was planning on contacting him when I was feeling better to tell him thank you and how much his prayers ment to me. I was in shock Saturday when I read Ronnie's post of David's passing. God bless you David and all your family. Im so sorry for your lost.
