I was thinking about you today as I watched Fallen. I hope we took care of your family after your tragic accident as you would have taken care of ours. I hope the know we hurt when you passed and that any shortcomings we had were because we did not know how to react better in the time of such a great loss. Your picture is hanging on the wall and your name is in our conversations even after all these years. Prayers for you family. If the should read this we still remember often the man that was our David.
