    David was my uncle. He is my dad Bruce's brother. I only knew my Uncle David briefly when we visited there as a child. I have a few fond memories of him. I recall he was so tall and had such a deep commading voice. He had the voice that made people stand up and take notice. He will be missed. My daughter is Samantha is 3 years old. She will get to know Uncle David in pictures and what my dad tells us about him. Many prayers and blessings to Aunt Wanda and our family. We love you Uncle David. Carrie and Samantha Gooden

    I worked with David from 1981 until 1984. He was a great person who really cared about people and doing the right things. I am glad we were able to get to know each other. Your family will be in our prayers.
