Dear Cecilia and family,
I send my sympathy and love to you in the passing of dear David. I was blessed to work with and for him some years ago and remain so grateful for that. He was like a brother and we had great respect for one another. Ceci, I'm sending you hugs for sure. I recall how much David loved you and all his family. He loved the Lord too and was His good and faithful servant.
May all the family celebrate with good memories as you praise God for David's life!
Love and Prayers,
Janice G. Culpepper
