DeAnne, Mr. Ferraro, Terry, Vincent, Joey and Families, what a bright light David brought to the world! You just felt like everything was going to be alright when you were with him, that life presented endless opportunities for laughter, and endless opportunities to help people. David figured out solutions to any problem quickly, and I still can hear him exclaim, "Look here!" when he had the answer. Larger than life yet humble. A great guy from a great family.
