Tink Tink

We got word last night that one of Brad's best friends, David, passed away.  Brad, his three brothers, David, and a few other friends grew up together like brothers.  In fact, they called each other brother and considered each other family.

David would have turned 31 on the 13th of December.  He had diabetes and fell in with the wrong crowd at one point and didn't exactly take the best care of himself for a while.  He had to have his leg amputated just below the knee about a year ago, but he was fitted for a prosthetic and was able to walk just as he had before.  His leg made a small metal "tink" sound, hence the title of this post.  David was always the first to make fun of himself and the last to feel sorry for himself.

In the past year he really turned his life around.  He was on the mends physically and emotionally, but he was still in pain, you could tell.  He was the best dad to his daughter, Erynn.  They loved each other more than anything.  He was a father, a son, a brother, and a friend.  He was many things to many people and he will be missed.

Please keep David, his family, and his friends in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
