    Sending Love to Uncle David and to all of you, his immediate family. He was super sweet to me in these last years that I got to know him better and he was good to my mother, his sister, in these later years. I wish for all of you - my cousins and others who knew and loved him that you allow the best of him to remain with you - strength, love, wisdom, generosity. And know that I value you and our family bond. May he be free and be at peace. Good bye Uncle David. I love you.
