From Terry and Jolene Miller:
We are sorry to hear of my buddy David's passing. We have missed our visits to Vista! He would save me a seat on Sunday's and he would sometimes tell me he was going to heaven with his mom and dad! I know that to be true! I last him when I left an Easter pail! I know his knees hurt him a lot. I remember the first time I met him he had a red clown nose -- and we giggled. He was my friend! God bless your family!
