To Alice and the entire family- So sorry to see the passing of David. Thinking of you guys brought back many, many memories from the time you all were our neighbors. It was nice to see where all the kids ended up!! Katy Plummer had tried to find you guys a while ago and called me to tell me that David was in the Heritage and his story. So sorry that you had to go through all that! Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of you at this difficult time. During the upcoming days let your memories sustain you!!! RIP David.
