In remembrance of our irreplacable David. Your passing had left a hole in our hearts that can never be filled. Thank you so much for all the times that you made us laugh, for all of your many kindnesses and for being the supreme example of bravery. We are so lost without you. When you went into the military, you told me,"I'll make you proud.". You kept your promise many times over. You told me that you would be at my wedding on December 20 and that I should "save you a seat". I want you to know that there will be a seat for you, right on the front row. You will be our most honored guest. There are no words to describe how much I love you.
