To all of David's family, my sincere condolences on your loss. My memories of David are from his early life. His smile was infectious and his laugh was engaging. I had the privilege of coaching him in baseball. He was well liked and a great teammate. I know he will be missed by all. You're all in my prayers.

To the Holmes Family. So sorry to hear of the loss of your son and brother David. Although he was several years younger, I remember him from summer swim school. He was a nice kid with a great smile and energy. Through the years I have remembered your family and hoped you were all doing well. Peace to you all. Patricia Crosby (I grew up in Flint).
