My deepest sympathies to Karen, Sharon, and the rest of the family. Thinking of you, Terri Brush Charest, January 21, 2013 I have known David's daughter Sharon and grandson Adam for 4 years now, although I never had the pleasure of meeting him in person. Sharon and Adam are 2 of the most family centered people, and they have spoken with so much love and respect about him, it is almost like I already knew him too. I have heard often about how much he loved his grandsons, and taught them about his love for the outdoors. Sharon and Adam, I am so sorry for your loss, and that of your entire family.
