    David was a real blessing for my Mother, Lillie, for 17 years. This was the best years of her life. He will surely be missed by us and all that knew him.

  • James Hampton says:

    Even though you were my step Grandfather you were the only Grandfather I knew and you will always be Grandpa to me. You taught me how to fish and took me and Darlene everytime we came to visit. I remember your daily morning walks rain or shine and how much I enjoyed going along. You always had some kind of wisdom for me like, never start smoking or work hard in school.I will never forget the short time I stayed with you and Grandma until I got my own place. Your generosity and big heart will never be forgotten. Love you and miss you, Jimmy
