Words cannot express the heartbreak you both must be going through, Jen & John. My thoughts & prayers are with you & your entire family. David was a great guy & I always enjoyed talking to him. I'm so sad that I'll never see him again, as I'm sure a great many people are, especially his family. As parents, you never expect to lose your child before you go & it's one of the hardest things you both will ever have to go through. But I know each of you have the strength inside you to keep going & David will live on in your hearts through forever. You'll all be reunited again someday. I'm always here if you need me.
