  2. Debbie, Nichole, Melissa, Natalie, Matt, Jason, Logan, Josh, Emily: Thank you for being so kind to our family when David was ill. We came to see our brother and my son, and were treated with such kindness from all of you. My heart is heavy with the passing of my “baby boy”; but I know he is in a much better place with God and with his Dad. God Bless you all, I love you all. Grandma Burns and family.

  3. Just want to wish David a very happy 55th birthday. He was a loving son who has finished his work here. Rest in peace, honey. I will love you forever and forever you will be in my heart. I miss you. Mom
