I have a lot of great memories of David from hs. It brings me so much sadness to have heard of the news of David's passing. I taught David in hs and he had kept in touch with me through FB over the years. I took David and his ornery dad on our NYC Trip for Economics class David's senior Year. My sincere thoughts and prayers are with David's family and friends. He will definitely be missed. If there is anything I can do please don't hesitate to contact me.
