  1. David you will be missed by your friends and family. David you were such a good person, I know that you are in a special place in heaven. My heart goes out to your family. Words are never enough to heal a broken heart, but I hope that time will bring them peace.

  2. I’m sorry to hear about David. I worked with him at New Millennium. I worked in Florida but visited him a few times while he worked in Hope. He was a friendly guy and easy to get along with. People liked him ’cause he was just a nice guy. I enjoyed the time I spent getting to know him. I know he loved his family and was devoted to caring for each of you. He spoke on many occasions about his son and daughter and mother. When he spoke of his kids you could hear the pride in his voice. It was always nice talking to him even if it was a quick email to catch up with each other. Just know his New Millennium family has your family in our thoughts and prayers.

  4. I’m sorry to here this news, David and I grew up together playing baseball in his back yard, and riding bicycles. David was a very good athlete and better friend, I wish we had stayed in touch a little more over the years, but I always knew I could call him and we would pick up where we left off. My prayers are with you Pam, Ms Baker , and Dennis.

  7. We have only known David for a short time but could tell he was a wonderful man of God, loving and serving his Lord Jesus faithfully.

I am so glad he and you chose Parkway. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Pam, Aaron, Ashley and Martha. We know you will miss him. But we do not grieve as ones without hope.
