My most heartfelt condolences to Monica, JoAnna, DJ, and sister Sandra and family. Monica so so sorry for your loss. Indeed, David was truly a great husband, dad, brother, and most of all a great great friend, like a brother to my brother Alfonso Araiza. It really hurts to hear that an Angel has departed from this earth, but we know that God needed this Angel . And this Angel will will take of his family and friends as much as he took care of you all here on earth. Praying for you all , May God give you all the strength you need at this difficult time and may David Rest In Peace. ??? Marta Araiza and family and the Araiza family.
