David and I were high school classmates and I always enjoyed being around him. He had a crazy sense of humor and could always make me laugh. We lost touch over time but I've been able to keep up with him through Debbie the past few years. It was so nice to be able to talk to him recently and follow him on Facebook. He's going to be greatly missed.
