You want to see something that will bring tears streaming down your face and make you so happy to see what loving things the kids had to say about their dad. Go watch it on www.wbko.com if it is still there. I cried because it was so touching and because of how devastated they was to know he was gone but then again they had so so many happy memories of him.
I hope when I have to go that there will just be half as many peoples life I have touched in some way. He sure was dearly loved.

david & liddy are great people, as well as their children.it is true he knew no strangers,and no matter where he was at, he was just" BUFF". we cant imagine no buff in our life, we always thought we would grow old together, laughing about both each others grand children, we are not old yet.david did not waste a minute of his life. he loved libby with all he was, and was very happy with their life.when any of you old friends start missing him go see his son, they are so much alike.and loved each other so. lets all pray that God has put more good souls in this world , and keep david alive in our hearts.we will see him in heaven some day, we will always love you.
