Dear Lord family,
We are so sorry to learn of the sudden loss of your beloved husband, father and grandfather.
We can recall so many happy memories of our years together in the neighborhood, especially all of those New Year's Eve parties.
We have been blessed to have been friends with so many wonderful people over the years.  David wasn't just one of the good guys we were lucky enough to know, he was one of the great ones.
