I will always remember David as the little brother my husband, MARCUS always missed but had because of the amazing family ties we had with the Herring family!
DAVID was awesome in all he did. He had an excellent spirit!
He loved God, his family, his pastor, his church and showed grace to everyone!
We were so proud of him and have missed him and spoke of him all these years.
We love you David! We will see you again one day. But we are so glad you are with your precious mom and dad and other loved ones now, safely in the arms of Jesus!
See you in a minute! Tell Gram and Grandad hello for us!
