September 8, 1975 – May 2, 2018
Today we meet to give honor and glory to our Holy God and to thank Him for His gift of David in our lives. According to the Word, from the foundation of the world, our Lord ordained David as a gift to me. David has been a source of inspiration to me and others in his dedicated work ethic. Many times after his bout with cancer in 2013, he struggled to work because of health issues. He never wanted to disappoint his clients. On March 14, while attempting to dress for work, he realized he could not support his weight with his right leg. He phoned his trusted friend Gary for help asking to be taken to UAB Highlands. David was a creative artist, taking other’s cast offs and repurposing them for friends. He was a loyal friend to many and gave totally of himself to those he loved throughout his life. I’m grateful for this gift of a loving son for 42 years. Thank you to family and friends who showed your love for him with gifts, food, cards and visits. Although he was often too sick to remember your visits afterwards, I could tell he felt loved by each during the visit.
“But now, O Lord, You are our Father; we are the clay, and You our potter; and all we are the work of Your hand.” Isaiah 64:8
