My deepest sympathy to David's family. I knew him only through his sons. There is no better legacy than raising children who grow up and become wonderful fathers in addition to dedicated sons. My heart is saddened with your loss, yet refreshed to know you have such wonderful memories. May God bless you as a family during this time of grief. Joyce Dunn
