To all of David's family, who I did not know except my old buddy Terry. My deepest condolences.
I just found David's obituary while looking for my old class mate David Gordon of Crestview.
I have such fond memories of all our times together chasing the ever elusive softball tournament win. With David playing 2nd. May The Lord have his way in all our lives.
