David was my first cousin. We lost contact decades ago. My sincere condolences to Donna, children and grandchildren, all of whom are relatives of mine.

I miss my grandfather. He was the funniest person I ever met. He could make me laugh no matter what I will always cherish the time I spent with him. I’m lucky he was in my life. Love you forever Granddad.
