    You are family, and a dear friend. I’ll always remember your laughter, even after my corny jokes. You will be missed always. Keep a beer cold for me, I’ll see you later

    Uncle David I don’t know where to begin talking about all our great times together. I enjoyed your company sitting around the table playing card games, 10,000 dice game, all your stories and your good cooking ! So many holidays spent together. The letter you wrote to me on my 30 birthday meant so much that I will treasure forever. We love you and you will be deeply missed! Thank you for always caring and being there for Joshua all those years ago, I met the love of my life because of you! Until we meet again, see you later ❤

    My cousin David was a sweetheart and a lot of fun to be around! I loved his smile and his laugh. Every time I saw him he always wanted to know how I was doing and what was going on in my life. He really was a special guy.
