Listen up everyone,
My friend, your friend and one of the best people I have ever met needs our help. For anyone whom doesn’t know David, your missing out. In fact, there’s an empty spot in your life that you don’t realize exists until you get the pleasure of meeting and being around David. 
David is the glue that holds this world together, the kindness amongst the darkness of this world. He is a loving father, and as Kim can attest to, the best partner a girl could ask for!
David needs our help! He is currently under medical supervision in the ICU. David underwent emergency surgery last night, conditions are very serious at this point in time. Out of respect for David’s family, we will leave the details to David and his family to divulge with whom they see fit. 
We have to band together to show support for David and his family, any means possible. Any donation made will go a long way in such a tumultuous time. 
We ask for vigilance, prayers, and good wisdom to Kim and Josiah as we pledge our hearts towards David’s recovery.
As we all know, times like this can be extensive, emotionally and physically draining. The faster and the harder we fundraise for David and his family, the more time they will have available to focus on David. 
Times like these are what makes family and friends the strongest cure for a speedy recovery.

We must stay positive, just as David always is. 

I love you David! Kimmy! Josiah!

As the days continúe, the ever cold reality becomes more apparent, David is really gone. Then the light comes through and reminds each and every single one of us; that although David isn't here physically; he will always remain here spiritually throughout our constant prayer,good faith, and the memories that he left us with.
The love that David shared with his fiancée Kimberly and son Josiah, are the greatest examples of Davids constant being. He will forever be missed and never forgotten.

As we continue through this tumultuous time, many of you have reached out interested in helping or donating goods in any way. Please contact message me via @6197926390. I have a list of foods we are in need of.
Thank you , all of you, for showing the love and support you all have. As we all know David was a light unlike any other. A person of great valor and respect; and beyond that, the most giving person even to a fault at times.
His last gift to the world will be himself, David again being the selfless person he is, had opted to be an organ donor long ago.
His legacy of good will,love and compassion will continue to live through his fiancé Kimberly and son Josiah.
I have pledged to make sure that Josiah grows up knowing exactly who his father was; and how loved and respected he was by all. Kimberly, we love you! Josiah we love you!
Out of respect for Davids family, we re asking for a day of limited contact and no visits for Kim and the family. They need today for themselves to remain by Davids side as he makes his final transition to a better world, a more deserving world than our own.
If your questions can't wait, or your eager to help donate or in any way possible,text me, my number is above.
David, we will always love you man. We will miss you today and forever, but we will honor you for the rest of our lives.
Thank you for sharing your life with us, one smile and laugh at a time.
Vigil information will be given immediately after it has been appointed and set.
Keep reposting, sharing and praying!

Can't say enough of everyone's generous words, donations and wishes.
At this time, we are requesting that only close friends and family be with David at this time.
It's a very emotional time, and David is loved by all; we just ask for a little privacy at this time .
I will keep everyone posted on future arrangements as we continue these next couple days.
Keep reposting, sharing and spreading Davids story. Help us meet our goal for Davids family!
Thank you and God Bless
David will always be with us!

David unfortunately has lost his battle.
We are asking everyone whom may want to say goodbye to come do so this afternoon .
This more then ever is the time to step up as friends, family, and followers for David,Kim, and Josiah. We need to show David the exact same love and happiness he shared with us day in and day out!
Let's this forever be a day of remembrance and not sadness, of celebration and not regret.
David continues to live in the love of Kim and Josiah, in our smiles, and ever great memory of David.
Love, pray, and smile; that's who David was, that's who David will always be !
