So sad to hear this.  I was so glad he was at our 45th reunion.  Just an all around great guy.  See you again, David.

It is sad that another classmate has left his loved ones and passed to the next plane. I am happy I got to visit with David and his wife at the last class reunion. See you on the other side, David.

David was just a great guy to hang around with and a wonderful person to know.   Somehow we lost touch with each other sometime in the late 1970's and I know I missed alot by not having him in my life since then.  He was a true friend. As an old song says "when we all get to heaven, what a day of rejoicing that will be" , I know I will see David  again in heaven.

It was so good to see David and his wife at the reunion.  He was one of those people who had a good outlook on life and integrity in all he did.  I am glad that he can rest in peace.
