David King was one of the most pleasant men I have known. He always had a good word, a
big smile and an attitude of helpfulness. He will be greatly missed.

My sincere prayer is for Johnnye to be blessed with the peace of God, the fellowship and love of friends, and treasured memories to lift her soul and spirit as she grieves David,s physical presence. They were a life loving couple . I am glad to have known them both.
