“We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey.”-KM

David, ours was unspoken!
Gratitude for your part in our journey & ineffable connection.
TA! for loving & embrace everything about me as I did you. This duo will be unrepeatable.
I’m shattered by your absence, but relieved you are now at peace.
Farewell, Snowflake.

I remember in grade school where we first met. You asked me for an eye pencil. Confused by this you had me hooked to wanting to know more about you. We became like 2 peas in a pod until you moved away. I was sad but had faith that i would see you again. I was right, at the Howdy Roo we met again. Caught up to each others lives and poof gone again. I will miss you David. Rest IN Peace.

David, I smiled the moment I saw you, I knew you were someone I needed in my life. You shared yourself with everyone in such an open and honest way. You had my heart the moment I first heart your contagious laugh. And saw that devilish grin. My life is eternally better for having you in it. I miss you and I love you.

I can’t express how much I miss you and regret we couldn’t get together as we had planned. We shared so many stories and experiences with each other growing up. I am comforted knowing you will be with your brothers and joining them in the afterlife. Love you so much and thank you for what we had together. Xoxo

David, I just found out today about your passing! I was saddened but know the road you traveled. I’ll remember the good times we shared like seeing Charo at the Casino and the first Christmas we met at Houston’s when I quickly rushed home to get you the gothic black door knocker that reminded me of you. Keep knocking in doors and hearts you touched. Love, David
