My sister is truly blessed to have had you in her life. Her life will forever be changed because of your influence and your loving, caring heart. Your legacy will live on in her soul. I'm grateful I was able to get to know you better. Like a ripple in a pond, my life is the better for having known you; like so many others lives you've touched. Thank you David for accepting me into your inner circle of family. You welcomed me with a generous heart. I felt a child-like joy when you allowed me to drive your tractor. You were truly larger than life in your actions and deeds. I pray you have found the peace you so richly deserve. God be with you. I'm blessed to have known you, my life will never ...be the same. I miss you 💔Read more
