I have many, many memories of David. 
One very prominent is when I gave him my locker combination so he could borrow my science book. He left a large not written on the inside of my locker, " Thanks for the book Sweets. I love you always. Your Best Friend,
He will forever hold a place in my heart.

I remember when I would watch Jessica and he would come over and play with her. He was so funny to watch. He let her win every race, pull his hair as she tried to climb on his back and cuddle up in his arms when they were done. He also walked me through some very dark and hard times. I wouldn't be who I am if he hadn't cares and talked me through it.

To be at David's home on Halloween was to see a grown man who still experienced the joy and exuberance that we too often leave behind.  For me, David will forever be the young boy whose smile and energy lit up the room when we were together.  I will miss that loving smile.
