    I remember when I first met Davey. He was 2 years old, and having lived in Florida, had never seen snow. We were at my mother’s house, Aunt Joyce, in Wilmington, IL, and we had a big snowfall. Davey had no idea what to do with that strange cold, white stuff. But, my son, Sam, who was 3 showed him what to do. Although neither spoke, Sam’s body language said, “Fall over on your face and feast!” So, he did.
    Davey also made a lasting impact on my daughter, Anna, when she was about 9 years old. There had been a hurricane in Florida, and the family evacuated and traveled up to stay with Aunt Ruby at the Red House. They stopped at the pet store to save animals that might be abandoned. One was a baby skunk!! It had it’s “stink maker” removed, and Anna just loved it.
    Although he only lived 29 years, he melted many hards along the way.

    David was a bright spot in my day when iworked for ADM as a cook on the Cooperative Venture. His smile was contagious. What a kind and considerate young man who loved his family. I am saddened to learn of his passing. Please accept my condolences. Hugs to all of you…
