    My deepest sympathies for David's Family and friends. I was a regular customer at his store and missed seeing him since he left work. I was in Huntsville when David was called home and missed this sad event. I was devastated on hearing this news. David was a great person, heaven has gained a great angel, and we have lost a dear soul. He will be greatly missed by many. Prayers of peace, comfort and strength. Enjoy your renewed health in Heaven my friend. :(
