  28. My thoughts and love are with Donna, Suzie and the rest of the family today. I first met David about 18 months ago and I will never forget his bright beaming smile that welcomed me every time we met. Such a wonderful person that you could talk to for hours. I was so blessed to get a few dances with you when you felt strong enough to whizz me around the dance floor. A beautiful soul taken far too soon. May you now find eternal peace. I will see you again one day my friend. You will not be forgotten. ❤️

  37. My heart is breaking for the loss of such a wonderful true and caring best friend who would often pop over after events for coffee, or phone very late n chat till ungodly hours, sometimes till the sun was coming up, laughing away those hours, how I wish he could keep me awake all night again with Donna drifting in n out of the conversations cause she hardly had a chance to get a word in. Those days are just in our memories now, so just think Donna now you can have your say. Love you to pieces, hugs to all.
