Although I have not seen David in many years (I live in McAllen now), I remember him well. He was a nice young man who was in the circle of friends of my youth. As I recall we were in Ballroom class together at Lula Lacey’s dance studio and hung out with the Lacey’s who lived in David’s neighborhood. My condolences go to Millie and to the family. I am praying that the Lord, through his mercy, will provide them with the comfort and peace needed. Sincerely, Deanna Longoria
