Thanks David for setting the bar. You were always the standard in which we strive to obtain. You gave the Officers of the Florence Police Dept. the perfect example of a life not wasted. With this and your friendship we could have not asked for more. Thank you to the Young family sharing David with us. We are all truly better people because of this. Thank you God for allowing us to know David. Rest in Peace my Brother.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family, friends, and co-workers of Officer Young. I know he was a great officer and a man of God. The one thing I have heard more often than not is that he never let you out of a ticket, but always wrote it with a smile -- regardless of how mad you were. You can't beat a man that can do his job, both the good and bad, and always have a smile on his face. He will be remembered for decades to come. Thank you Officer Young.
