Carolyn and Family, We were so shocked and saddened to read about David in the morning paper. It didnt tell us if he had been ill or died suddenly.

Janie & Bill Word

Dear Carolyn, We are in Texas and just learned about David's death. We are so sorry for your loss. We both liked and admired David - he meant so much to Enid and all who knew him. Bill worked with him at the EHS Alumni Association and I worked with him at the hospital. It was a pleasure! I can only imagine how much you'll miss the "love of your life". I'm so glad both boys are nearby. Sorry we missed the funeral. We're thinking of you.
