David, it’s been 29 years since you left us to be with our Lord and Savior. You are missed by all who knew you, which is many. We were roommates back in 1991 when you were taken from us and you were a proud father to be, unfortunately you were taken from us 3 months before your beautiful daughter was born. You would be oh so proud of her. I just retired after 37 years and I’m sure you were watching over me, as I have felt your presence several times throughout my career in dangerous situations. I will visit you soon in Victoria my friend. See you on the other side. I’m sure your country dancing in heaven amongst the angels.
