    Aunt Rosie, Davey, Bobby, Terri..... I don't know what words to say to bring you comfort and peace, though that is my hope for you all. He is up there with Daddy and you know they are having fun, probably causing trouble or fishing...or both. Uncle David was a great man and he will be missed by all that knew him. You are in my thoughts and prayers at this time. Love you all.
