    David was a gifted and faithful Sunday School teacher with me for several years at Grace Church. He was a positive Christian role model in communicating with the children and in his own life. I enjoyed his cheerful, intelligent company. David lived life fully and honorably. May God hold him close. --Kim Lovejoy, Brooklyn
