  1. So sorry to hear of the loss of your father, David Sr. I knew your family for a long time and so enjoyed visiting and staying with them. I remember going fishing on the river at night, playing with the coon dog puppies and just the overall fun we all had. Every time I saw your dad out and about he would always smile and wave, talk to me and give me a big hug. I’m sorry that I will not be able to be there Saturday. Please know I am thinking of you and my heart goes out to you and family.
