My thoughts and prayers are with the family of Mr. David. I was so sad to see the paper today and the passing of Mr. David. My Father is a resident at the George Waldron Veterans home and I had the opportunity to meet Mr. David and visit with him almost daily. I actually looked for Mr. David today because I always take them treats and he was not there. I just thought he was in his room. He was always so friendly and I enjoyed his stories. He always wanted me to come to dinner with him to taste his wife Sandy's good cooking. He adored you Sandy and often spoke of you, your beauty, and what a lucky man he was to have you. I told him you were also pretty lucky to have such a nice husband. I'm glad I had the opportunity to talk, interact with him, and give him treats he always seemed to enjoy. Mr. David was a wonderful, caring man and I truly enjoyed his company. Again, I am so sorry for your lose and wish your family strength to get through this difficult time.

Dear Sandra and family,
I am sorry to hear of your loss. I only had a brief relationship with David before I moved from Brigham. He was a great person and I wish I could have stuck around and gotten to know him better. Our prayers for the family...
