    Barbara and family, I am saddened to learn of David’s passing, and I’m so sorry for your loss. I have fond memories of my very early years growing up with my cousins Sally Jo, David, and Bobby. We enjoyed playing in the fields and gullies along Mc Ana Rd (McAnner to us). Kim, I also enjoyed the brief time we shared as co-workers at the counseling center in Martin.

    I realize this is a sad time, but let your pleasant memories of David fill your hearts with love.
