    Richie and Gail – I do not know what to say. To say I am shocked to hear this news is just not even adequate. I have thought about you all often since moving away from Wildwood and consider the Davis’ an extended part of my family and a wonderful piece of my life. I remember David as the cutest little boy, grinning up there on the front pews of the church where you always sat. He never misbehaved in church but always looked like he wanted to and was out the door faster than anyone when Bill said Amen! I love you all and will be thinking of you and praying for you in the days to come.
