    Dave-my cousin but a brother, my confidant, my partner in life challenges:
    I love you. I will miss you terribly.
    If a sliver of anything resembling happiness and/or joy at this time, it is that I know you are no longer in pain, you are resting comfortably in Our Lord’s arms and I will see you again.
    God I love you so. Goodbye Dave, for now.

    Dear Lisa and your Mom and Dad:
    So sorry for your loss. I remember meeting David through you years ago and without missing a beat, David was smiling! I am also a STA graduate so David and I had fun talking about everything we got away with back in those days. I remember him just like that.
    Lisa, a smile is precious and David always had one.
    Rest in Peace my friend.

    David and your whole family are in our thoughts and prayers. It is always very sad to lose an old friend. I couldn’t help but smile when I thought back to the St Mark’s and STA days.
