I worked at Palmetto General Hospital with David years ago. I always found David very caring and wonderful human being. I remember him always wanting to pursue a career in law enforcement and I remember him being so excited when he finally got one. His death hit me quite hard it was so unexpected. But here it is 2018 and I'm remembering David as a caring wonderful individual. And I think it is that caring and wanting to help people that he got into law enforcement. May you R.I.P.
