David,
After ten years so much was changed. But I guess somethings will never change.
Wish you were here to be the peacemakers. You had a special way of understanding and bring out the best in everything you did.
That little word why is still there. We go on because we know we will see you again someday.
Keep giving us the signs and thanks for watching over all your family.
Love you and miss you SON
XOXO
