  1. What a precious picture. Our hearts are with you Mick and all of the family. Much love, Rosie& Janie

  2. David was one of my dearest and oldest best friends. We laughed, we cried, we joked, we watched football games together, we even loaned each other money when in a crunch. He was always there for me – just a phone call away. David, Mickey and I had a lot of fun together, cooked dinners together, shared times of grief, moments of stress, but the three of us were always there for each other. A friend of mine said one time, “I want to go to David & Mickey’s” and I asked her why. She said, “Isn’t that a restaurant/bar because you are always going there”. I laughed and said no, it was my oldest best friends! I will miss you so much David, but you aren’t suffering anymore. I love you man.

  3. I am thinking of you all. Wish I could be there. Dana, I have so many fond m memories at your parents house. Love you all!

  5. Unfortunately, I did not have the pleasure of knowing David and Mickey as long as others, but the time I did get to spend with them was always a great memory and lots of laughter. David had this twinkle in his eyes and a smile on his face that I felt was a healthy combination of orneriness and mischief. He had a wit and humor that I dearly loved and appreciated. It takes a pretty tough woman to handle that large personality and Mickey was the perfect match for him. I never left a night spent with them that I didn’t want to come back for more! David and Mickey are a perfect example that true love DOES exist and does prevail. I bet heaven has been rocking and rolling upon his arrival. Party hearty, David! And please keep my beer cold til I get there!

  6. To Mickey and all the family,
    May the Light of God surround you. May you feel His presence.
    Love you all,
    Debbie and Devron

  7. David has been my friend for more than 58 years. He was always the greatest friend!! Unfortunately time separates friends but I will always feel his personality and hear his booming laugh. I was blessed to know him and be part of his family as a struggling teen-ager. To the sisters you know each of you were very loved and appreciated by David! April and Eric , your Dad always bragged about you and wished the very best for you!! I can’t be in Lubbock Saturday for the funeral but I will be watching live and shedding tears with you.
    Everyone that you knew you David, will miss you!
