"TODAY IS ANOTHER BIRTDAY WE ARE WITHOUT YOU, SON. WE ALL HAD SOME PRETTY GOOD DAYS WITH YOU, WHICH WE ALL ARE THANKFUL FOR THEM. THE GOOD LORD BLESSED YOU WITH A LOT OF TALENT, NOT ONLY ATHLETICLY, BUT YOUR ENJOYMENT OF MUSIC. THE FIRST TIME I HEARD YOU SINGING "THE DEVIL CAME DOWN TO GEORGIA" I COULDN'T BELIEVE YOU NEW EVERY WORD TO THAT SONG. I NEVER DID SEE YOU AND YOUR "AIR BAND" PERFORM. BUT, FROM WHAT I WAS TOLD BY BUTCH ENOCH AND LESTER DENLY, YOU BOYS PUT ON A GREAT SHOW. IT WAS ABOUT THAT TIME YOU STARTED WEARING THE HANDKERCHIEF ON YOU LEVIS` THIGH. I FIGURED IT OUT AFTER SOME TIME. YOU WERE A JOY TO ME AND YOUR BROTHER AND SISTERS. WE ALL MISS YOU VERY MUCH. I PRAY THAT YOU DID FIND THE LORD.  I LOVE YOU AND WILL FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.

DAD"

"My baby brother was one of my favorite people. He was brilliant, strong, charismatic, charming and so much fun to be with.

I am glad that he knew how much I loved him because I know how much he loved me."

"David was my little brother for most of my life.  He quickly became a man of his own both in athletics and in life.  Homeboy Hardison dazzled the crowds  at Warrior stadium. But what he didn't know was how much of a star he was to me.  I will always remember my tag along little brother, but I'll also remember the determined athlete he was."

"David was my baby brother. When he was little he called me mommy until he was about 3 yrs old. I took care of him when mom had to work and even changed his diapers. We were very close all through the years and lived together in our adult years to help each other with living expenses. We had a lot of good times. He was always a joy to be around. I will miss him tremendously. Debbie Hardison"

"My Great Uncle David and I weren't the closest, but I always enjoyed the moments I got to spend with him. He was always so much fun to be around and had no problem taking us fishing or letting us stay over at his house. The last time i saw him was this past week and I'm so glad I got to see him before he passed on. He's stronger now than he was ever and much happier. I love and miss him."
