From the moment I met David we became brothers. I took him into my home and adopted him as my brother. He did me as well, like I was his little brother. We worked together many times. If I needed something he would help. If he needed anything I would do the same. We had a special kind of unspoken Bond. If we needed something; an ear to listen, money, a place to live or Spiritual help, we didn't need to say anything. We just reached and made that phone call to each other to ask do you need something. Our Relationship was almost like a marriage. We were happy to be together to work together. Worry about each other. We shared each other's dreams, our wishes, our Spiritual lives. We cared, if one of us was sad, to make the other smile. If one of us fell, we picked each other back up and made sure we were okay. I am honored to know such a loving, caring and God fearing man. Forty four years of loving and caring for each other. Until death did part us. We shared our deepest fears, we knew more about each than most true blood brothers. I'm Glad I could Cheer you up David, make you want to live to see Charlene. I tried to make you see you had to live in love and happiness again to rejoin and mend your broken heart. Fly high My brother give My big sister a kiss. God bless.

So many memories, Dad. The many times I would be crying in your lap over something and you would make me laugh when I wanted to cry. The gifts you gave me out of love that you really couldn't afford. The things you taught me...like how to hotwire a car at age 13..lol. Teaching me to ride a bike without training wheels. The horse and pony you bought me that I loved. The funniest man I have ever known. You are so easy to Love. I will never stop missing you and I will work harder to be my best self for you. Your love and praise of God was impressive. You are absolutely one of a kind. Funny. Compassionate. The truest warrior I have ever known. I will love you forever and miss you everyday. Your first born, Deb
