Crow, I am heart broken that you left us so soon. You were a good friend and I will miss our conversations. You had a great since of humor and always had me in stitches. I will miss our bi annual trips the the local guitar shows. Most of all I will miss you and the fantastic work you did for me here at Airgas. Thank you for your dedication to always giving your best. You were a true icon to our industry here in Ft. Worth.
Good bye for now
Your friend, Brian

I cannot imagine my life without you in it. My love for you will remain and may you rise in the Eternal Light of The Most High. Blessings my sweet, sweet friend.

Dear Karen and Michael,
I am so sorry for your loss. I lost a brother a little over a year ago; the death of a sibling leaves a huge void. You can no longer pick up the phone and reminisce about shared childhood memories or know that there is someone who will always have your back.

Karen, I remember our Garwood days. I was too shy to get to know David well. I remember how kind he was and how he loved music.

May you experience peace in your remembrances of David in the days to come.
