David and his pre-deceased wife Mikel have blessed us with so many exceptional gifts of kindness and generosity over the years. We are certainly left with a lifetime of great memories. And now their precious children and grandchildren will follow in their footsteps creating shadows of their parents and grandparents. May God bless David's family with strength and courage during this time of sadness and guide them into a peaceful and happy future. Life without David's presence will be very heartbreaking and difficult. Love to all.
