"Hello my son. How I miss you. Just want you to know that we are all fine, but missing you very much. What I miss most is seeing you on the grill in the summertime, our debates we use to have all the time. I want you to know that your brother Dume is taking very good care of me, Anton and your nephew DeLonta and we are taking care of him. We are family. Anton has improved so much and is finally out of danger, as long as he takes better care of himself. As the days go by there is not one that passes that we don't think about you. We remember some things you would say or do. We miss you David. We love you. We are forever connected to you here on this earth or you in heaven. RIP David, Talk to you later."

"I was sitting here just thinking about you. We had a family gathering last week and I could see you plain as day on the grill. I could hear you telling people to get back. The summer time is really hard for me without you here. I miss those calls from you saying " come over ma, I'm putting food on the grill". I miss our conversations (debates), no one debates me the way you used to. I just miss spending time with you. Dume and Lil Mann is dong great. I wanted to let you know that Anton is better. He's still hard headed. Our birthdays are coming up next month, what are we going to do to celebrate? I don't know, you would always do something. How I miss you.  Rest in peace we are all doing ok, just missing you."

"I've been thinking about you all day, knowing that I was coming here to write a tribute to you. What I'm going to focus on today is all I didn't know about you before your passing. I am approach almost every week by some people that know me as your mother. Some of them apparently I forgot about and some I remember.  I didn't know all that you did for others that were not close family and friends.  But they were your friends, people that called you when they needed something. I knew that you gave of yourself more than you received. I can remember you saying you have to do this or another for someone.

Since you have been gone a lot of things have become clearer to me. One thing is that I truly didn't know all the sides of you. But knowing now I am extremely proud more so now than I was before. I have always been proud of you. I have been blessed to be your mother. Having you in my life has made me the mother I can today. I miss you. I wish you were here. I'll always love you. Until we meet again and we shall."

"Dreamt about you last night. It was Father's Day, we were cooking out, you were on the grill, as you always is. We kept running into the kitchen and you were upset. Someone was always in your way, messing around in your kitchen. You finally put everyone out, including Anton. You didn't have to put me out because we feel the same way about being in the kitchen.  We always need the kitchen to ourselves.

It still hard not having you here with us. I miss you so much, still wishing you were here, but I now understand that you had to go. I love so much, now and forever."

""Sometimes God picks a flower still in full bloom
The rosebud's chosen that we feel he picked too soon
But God knows the Perfect time
To gather flowers from the ground
Cause there's a Heavenly Garden
In which He takes Great Pleasure
Because He's placed within it
The loved ones that we treasure
He walks among the blossoms
Giving them eternal rest
And I know it must please Him
Because he chose our very best"

RIP Dave"

"All year long I been looking for you. I been hearing you say "Mom you want me to fix you something to eat, or don't worry I got. Looking for you in the kitchen, on the grill and telling everyone to get out the kitchen. I miss our heated debates. Sometimes I want to smack you in the mouth and other times you created great points. I often look at your pictures, I hear your voice and I still have your phone number on my phone. Somebody got your number, it didn't sound like you. I truly missed you and love you so much. Always my son."

"I'm just finding out about this. I just have a little story to tell about me and David.  When was young we use to go downtown to the movies and watch kung fu from 10am to 10pm almost every Saturday so i guess you can say that that was our brother time together. Luv you and miss you dave. Brother 4life"

"Your left us suddenly on a Wednesday. I didn't get a chance to say good bye. I couldn't believe that it was you. You were one of the lights in my eyes, part of the breathe that I breathe, part of the smile on my face and one of the quickness in my step. Most of all you were me.

What do I do without me. I get up in the mornings thinking about you and go to be doing the same.  my others parts of me miss you to (Gilbert & Anton). I know that you are no longer in pain and hurting and that makes bearable. I know that you are free. Love you always, Mom."
