Cameron's Uncle David aka Daddy Dave, along with his Aunt Mary made me feel like part of the family as soon as we met. I was so welcomed from the very start that they weren't just my husband's aunt and uncle they became mine too.
David was very likeable, with a good sense of humor and I could tell right off that his family meant the world to him, especially his love for his wife. Romantic that I am, it was truly lovely to witness.
My heartfelt prayers and deepest condolences to Mary, Melany, John, Paige, Ryan, Tori, Jane, Ray, Laura, Brandon, Rachel, Mark, Bill and the rest of Dave's family, friends and of course my Cameron.
I wish I could be there with you all but I want to say something that my brother's MiL said when our oldest brother, Paul passed away a few years ago and it helped somewhat.
I'm so glad that I met and got to know David ❤. It may have been brief compared to most of y'all but it was STILL wonderful. He was an awesome person to know and I will miss him so very much.
I'm sending my love and hugs to everyone. I know the next few days will be both sad and joyous as he is remembered. Please know that I'm just a call or text away if you need to talk.
I found the following poem and I hope it will help give some ease. Not sure who wrote it but I think it's beautiful.
"Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free,
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took his hand when I heard his call,
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
I've found that peace at the close of the day.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My Life's been full, I savoured much,
Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wanted me now, He set me free."
Rest in Peace, David.
With much love and God's blessings,
