    Goodbye dear friend. I will miss you more than you can imagine, but am grateful that you are now pain free. For 70 or more years, you made me laugh, got me in trouble, sometimes let me get you in trouble and never ceased to amaze me with your brilliant mind and quick wit. The world was a better place with you in it and will never fill the void left by your death, but such is the way of our existence on this planet. Some of us achieve great things, others struggle greatly and most of us just “Muddle” through (had to get that in). Rest peacefully and feel the love that will come pouring out your way in the days and weeks to follow

    Rest in paradise. Soar with the Universe. You can do that now because I believe that you are out of pain.

    Thanks for helping me through the most difficult time in my life, my “uncle friend.”
    I will never forget that – – – never.

    Rhonda, please take care of yourself and let me know if there if there’s anything that I can do to help.you. I am so sorry for your great loss.

    Danny, I am thinking about you much and am here for you.

    Auntie, I’ll be checking on you.

    The world is a different place than it was just a few days ago.

    Love, Lisa

    There are no words to fill the hole in all of our hearts….we are glad you are no longer suffering pain and you are finally getting the sleep you could not get in the pain and suffering you were enduring. None of us can imagine a world without your brilliance and humor. And yet, here that world is. Until i could not drop you an email or a phone call after Monday morning, I had no conscious awareness of the number of times in a day I would think, “Oh, David would like to know that.”….mostly about science news on all media or a great movie not to miss….never things about politics…
    .I have saved every funny reply you ever wrote to me about a question or a topic that I initiated. I told you I was doing that so I could always hear your voice and what would make me laugh. I never dreamed I would stop hearing those pokes at people and things at such a young age….
    It is always good to hear from your grade school friends’ recollections…especially Norman’s….as you told me many stories of you and Norman….all of us have stories that cover over 7 decades….if we typed them all out, we would be rolling on the floor in laughter as you were one of THE funniest people on this planet….e.g. when we would take cruises 2 or 3 times a year during teacher vacations, and we sat at a table of 6-8 people, our table was the noisiest in laughter and people at tables around us would scootch closer to our table to try to partake of the frivolity.
    Except that you are out of suffering, this is the darkest period in my life. One of the darkest in all of our lives.
    Giant hugs and tear filled kisses on the cheek….Lynda

    Rhonda I have no words to take the hurt away. The hurt is so deep because you loved so fully. I will miss David and his humor. Just know I will be there for you any time. Love you always.

    It still doesn’t seem real that you are gone. It feels like you will walk in any minute like you just ran to Menards again. From broadway show nights to chinese and dollar store runs our times together will be cherished. You were always quick with a laugh and a really bad joke. I appreciate all the times we discussed politics and current events, you always listened to my views and opinions. It’s clear from your early days of ice cream truck endvors to your love of showing off the latest gadget or toy that your passion in life was to make people happy. You will be greatly missed Uncle David and forever loved.
