    I am so saddened to hear of Little "D"´s passing. He had a marvelous father & mother. He & his family were & are important members of the community. There are not many on the CB Island who were not somehow touched by the kindness of his family. So sorry to hear of such a young life that gave so much to so many now gone. God Bless you Little D. You will be sorely missed. I know you are celebrating in Heaven with you Dad & others.
