I have been friends with David since 1970.  He was always a very kind and gentle soul .  He had a wonderful sense of humor. I am so happy that he was able to return to Indiana and reunite with some of his friends. Rest In Peace David. You can now be with your family and your two special guardian angels, Jenni and Nancy. All of you will be missed so much!
