CeCe and family: I am saddened to learn of David's passing. I had no idea that he was battling this. I should have known something was up because I hadn't seen CeCe and David at the Gracie. I think I am still in shock. I will remember David's big grin, his loving devotion to his family, and his love for his community. He will be sadly missed by all of you and by the area. I wish you all great strength during this terrible time.My sincere condolences. I wish I could make the service but I am obligated to work that day. I will be thinking of you all.
