Tomorrow I mourn my friend Davids passing.....
Tomorrow I will hold my sweet friends hand, while she says goodbye to her Husband, her best friend, her soul mate....
Tomorrow I will be thankful for knowing him, Thankful for him being the kind of man he was, one who served our country, loved his family and was a good friend to all....
A few years ago I had lost contact with my best friend Sheila, his wife, my friend. She and the family had moved away to a military base in Germany. I had lost my oldest Son, I needed to talk to Sheila so I found a military forum listing and posted hoping to find my friend so that I could tell her of my loss.... David found that post and on a whim[ he didn't know if I was a kook or really me] he helped us reconnect, I will never forget him for helping me and Sheila reunite... ever.
Dave it's your time to be an angel, to guide us with your lite of love.
I'll think of you often and never forget.
Until we meet again.........
