Wishing that I had known that it was a seizure you had at my house the night you were taken to the hospital, never to leave until you passed. I know that you are pain free now and that is a comfort. We had a good 11 years together and I will never forget that, or you. I'll miss you and love you, always...

with adversity as his constant companion in the past few years, we witnessed how one man kept his chin up better than many of us could. A sign of true strength David, from one of the local boys.

I have so many great memories of David, we would laugh so hard some times, he was always my protector, he was always funny, had such spirit. He was a great person. I will miss my favorite childhood cousin. Life can be so unfair. He no longer has to be strong and fight through the pain and side effects he endured these last few years. Thinking of all of my cousins during the difficult days and weeks ahead. Love all of you. Corinne
