I am so sorry to hear of David's passing. I remember so fondly going to school with Janie, David and Donna at Buffalo Gap. Mrs. Jordan was so very kind to me when I would visit their home in Buffalo Gap. Nelda Lynn Walker

Sarah and Family:
I knew David as a boy that lived down the street from my house in Buffalo Gap. His sister Donna was my best friend in third grade. Oh how David loved to tease us. I can see he grew up to be a fine man. I am so sorry for your loss.
