    David was such a kind man, who I got to know through boarding my horse at the same stable where he kept his. I always enjoyed our conversations, and admired how he was so caring and attentive to all our horses’ needs. I feel fortunate that our paths crossed in this lifetime so that we could become friends through our mutual love of horses. He was always willing to help anyone out and always kept a friendly smile on his face. I pray that you will find comfort in knowing that he touched a lot of lives, both animal and human, while he was here. He will certainly be missed.

    My sincere condolences to David’s family and friends. We grew up together in Greenville/Taylors. Many fun baseball and football games behind Howard Rogers’ house on Howell Road.
    My brother Wayman spoke with Susan after learning of David’s death. Unfortunately Wayman passed away in his sleep on March 28.
    Rest In Peace David and Wayman. I am sure you have now talked old times together.
