Memorial Tributes

"As years go by, our memories fade. We have a million other things to do in this busy life of ours, and we sometimes forget to do the "little" things that mean so much for ourselves and others. The most important thing for me to do today is - to eat some cake for David's Birthday and to toast his life with a beer.

"Again this year I will have dinner at one of David and my favorite restaurants and toast him to celebrate the wonderful person he was and for the loving life we had together. I feel his spirit with me every day as we were truly soul mates and completed each other's lives. David, MY LOVE I will always feel the love we had and hold you close. I am thankful every day for our eleven years during which we experienced total love and commitment for each other. You were and always will be my PRINCE CHARMING. You have been my strength in moving forward after losing you.

I also will toast David's sister, Linda, who, like David was a very caring and wonderful person. Linda and her husband, Dick, were here in Scottsdale for several birthday celebrations and we always had such a good time with them. She and David were always very close. She passed away on his 70th birthday just weeks before he was diagnosed.
I hope they have been reunited in spirit.

"It is hard to believe it has been a year since David's passing.  Cindy and I think of him often and talk about old times.  I ran across a quotation recently that says it well. "Time renders all people and all things silent.  But I will remember you and speak of you for all the time I have""

"“The good die young” appears in movie titles and songs, but it fits here too.  David was very much one of the good guys and he has gone from us much too early.  We were fortunate to have several opportunities to hang out with David.  We met at Lycoming, crossed paths in State College for several years and visited back and forth frequently between Edmonds and Victoria.  David was a “best” for both of us friend and we will always treasure the times we shared together.  We miss you.

Dave and Cindy Hultsch"

"David was a such a wonderful person in so many ways. I feel so fortunate to have known him for many, many years. I know how much he loved all of his friends and family. I will think about him and pray for him everyday.  He will be truly missed by me everyday of my life.

"I am so very sorry to hear of the passing of my father's cousin & my great-uncle Bud's son, David.  I remember David at our Kaffman family get togethers that my grandma Grace helped to organize in the "Kauffman Woods."  I always enjoyed speaking with David and with his sister, Linda. My heartfelt sympathy & prayers are with you and your family at this time, Jeannie, Laura & Jaxon.  God bless you with His peace that passes understanding and may David's memory live on in your hearts as you carry on his legacy.
