It is coming up on eight years since that tragic day. I was one of the first on the scene. I remember and will always the shock I was in when I found out you were gone. I had just seen you a few hours earlier and as usual you were laughing and smiling. I will cherish that last memory of you. Brother, you were an inspiration. A man who no matter the situation kept his head and his professionalism intact. On that day, I came closer to God. Thank you David. I miss you and think about you regularly. You are truly missed.
