Dear Denise and the Rucci Family
I was shocked, saddened and in disbelief to hear about David's passing since I just talked to him the day before.
David has kept in touch and visited me since the passing of my late husband Bob over 4 years ago.
He was a very thoughtful and caring person. He was a True Friend. I will miss him dearly.
David will forever be in everyone's heart.
David and my late husband Bob are now reunited for eternity in heaven.
My deepest condolences

When I first heard the news about David, I was in utter shock. We had spoken on Thanksgiving Day. He had said he was going to make plans with Denise to come to Houston for a visit.
Davis was a great man and a great friend. We were childhood friends as we lived across the alley from one another. We were Altar boys together at Holy Rosary Church.
Rest in Peace my wonderful friend.
Love you buddy.
