    David was a long time friend of mine. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. May God be with you during this time of sorrow.

    Linda, my heart goes out to you and your family. I lost Carl on 1/11. Huge whole in my heart but he is no longer in pain and that is a comfort. I am sure you will feel the same way. He would have been 78 on the 13th of December. It is not easy. Waves of grief will hit you when least expected. You don’t have to be strong you just need to start every day knowing God has a plan. Family is very important and you have lots. My love to you and yours. Glo
