Each morning, in my prayer, I tell David that he will always be loved and missed - How true this is! David was a gift, a challenge, and a wonderful grandson. I smile often at my great memories and the way he would say, "Granma," and his eyes would twinkle.

David, you have always been a part of our lives, having something in common with Julian. You may have left Ellingson Drive and are now gone forever but our thoughts will always be with you. We will always treasure our fond memories of you and Matthew playing with Julian in that plastic pool in the back yard one summer. You will forever be missed.

Very sorry to learn about David's passing. We want you to know that the Drue King family shares your grief, and you are in our thoughts and prayers. We appreciate and remember Ted's excellent work in recounting Dad's story at Harvard. It is difficult to know what to say at such a sad time, but we wanted to reach out to you with whatever support we can offer.

Dear Ted, I did not know you had lost your son David until today, 12/17, as I read the morning newspaper. How profoundly sad to lose such a young person, how heartbreaking to lose your child. My deepest sympathies to you, your wife Peggy and son Matthew, and to Grandmother Gee Gee. Sincerely, Peggy Fitzgerald CWRU DMLL

I can't stop thinkin about the old days back at school and times spent with you. I wish I could teleport back in time and just relive our days in high school. Every memory that comes to my mind with you we were always laughing. I wish you were still around to share that laughter with us today. I'm always gonna miss you Gup, and every time I laugh I'll be thinkin about you buddy.

Hello my man, It's a lot easier to sometimes to write down how you feel then just saying it. My heart sinks when I think about you, I wanted to call you the other day because I was in Akron and just felt emptiness looking at your phone number. Maybe, just maybe, if I called you would pick up.... Im choked up thinking of you. Forever missed, Love you...

"when I look to the sky something tells me your here with me and you make everything alright.When I feel like I'm lost something tells me your here with me.... And I can always find my way when you are here"-train explains how I feel :)

Dave, I miss you so much. I'm not even sure where to start with the memories, there were so many, and it seems like just yesterday...It's not the same without you, but your spirit will live on through us, and we will never forget you. Rest in peace buddy.

I remember the first time I met David in 6th grade, my first year wrestling at Orange. From the moment I stepped on the mat you were always there to take the edge of a hard practice or encourage me to stick with it because I would get better. You were with me through the thick of it and gave me memories that will never dim from my memory. I miss you and never will forget you RIP my friend.
