Memories Timeline


  1. So sad to hear of the passing of one of my schoolmates. David and I were in first grade together at W.T. Henning. We later went to W.W. Lewis together and eventually graduated SHS together. Many find memories of David. Playing on monkey bars, riding bikes on the crosswalk (shhhh). I saw David a year or so ago while he was helping paint the Pentecostal church on West Parish RD. It was good to see him and I’m glad now that I was able to visit with him for a few minutes.
    Prayers for the family.

  2. David was one of a kind. A dear friend to me. We use to party for days at his house James also he will be missed dearly.RIP my friend and fly high
