Susan you were the love of his life and it is obvious in the pictures he adored you. You two made each others lives a joy and shared a passion for life that was undeniable. You were with him until the end and he will continue to stay by your side. Love you friend and am always here for you.
I have never known a harder worker. David was the best, he worked 7 days a week and yet managed to find time to take us all to the beach every Sunday. A mother's day or birthday did not pass without him acknowledging it. He loved us like we were his own children. He is missed and will always be loved by his extended family. We will never forget the love he showed us and the laughs he gave us!! I love you David, you will always be with us.
Susan and family, Nick and I are so sorry for your loss!! Nancy Frede
