Nancy, I am so sorry to hear about David. I regret missing the reunion and getting to see and visit with you guys. I thought a lot of David, I can still remember his laugh and the fun we had playing Pictionary at Connie and Steve's. I wish I could be there for his service but just know I am there in spirit and I love you very much.
Much Love & Hugs
