Ainsley and your family,David and I have been friends since Monterrey, which, I guess, was a few years ago. I particularly remember him playing in the raucous 43rd street football games over the years. My keen recollection is that David is one of those good people who energizes those around him. I love him dearly and will be thinking of you.Fondly,Chip Monk

In the prink and active, then snuffed out, is way too much for me to process or accept. We will have to be there for each other and gradually live in the new reality.

The outpouring of love and affection from this community validates the good David did every day to make this a better community and world. Few people have been universally loved by all the people whose lives he touched. May God bring each of you comfort as you grieve his loss. May we each live up to his example and standards as we carry his values in our hearts.

I am so sad about David’s death. David and I met at church camp when we were in jr high and have been friends ever since. David always took a special interest in my son, Jeffrey and especially his baseball career at Monterey. That meant so much to me and he always continued to check up on him. David was truly one of the good guys. I will miss him.
