Dear family of David’s
I had the pleasure of meeting David as a groomer for his beloved Molly. After getting to know him I house cleaned for him for probably 5 years. He always amazed me with his honesty, energy, kindness, integrity and his absolute love for Miss Molly (and of course his family). I always enjoyed having conversations with him. Many times he would share some of his baked goods with me. I have recipes that he wrote out for me which I will always cherish. Unfortunately with life’s challenges I had to give up working for David. I regret never getting back to visit him. David will always be in my fondest memories. My deepest sympathy to each and every one of you.
