    My thoughts and prayers go out to your family. David was a great character, always made me laugh with his antics! We had many good talks about Germany that I will always remember. 'Do you want to go dance Polka?' He missed Gladys so much and I hope they are dancing together again! - Posted by Marie Darling on March 21, 2024
