David C. Funeral information


Recommended Posts

An e-mail from the parents-

Our beloved son David went to be with the Lord on Wednesday evening, June 15, and he is at peace. David was an optimist and a fighter and he never gave up. He was in great pain and had fought long and hard with great courage for over two years. We and his sisters and wife were blessed to be at his side in his final moments and to see that old pleasant, peaceful look on his face when he went to heaven.

Friends and family are welcome to visit and celebrate David's life on Friday evening, June 17th from 5:00 to 8:00pm at Bennett's Funeral Home, 8014 Lee Davis Road, Mechanicsville, VA (phone 804 746 8665).

The funeral service will be held at the Northside Baptist Church, 7600 Studley Road, Mechanicsville, VA. at 10:00 AM on Saturday with the burial to be at Hanover Memorial Garden.

Several of you have asked about memorial gifts. David is a beloved member of a wonderful online support group and we know he would be honored by donations in his memory, to continue to help others there:

Lung Cancer Support Community

PO Box 1205, Euless, TX 76039

Donations may also be made to the team who took care of him during these final difficult days at: Massey Cancer Center, The Thomas Palliative Care Fund, P.O. Box 980037,

Richmond, VA 23298-0037.

If you prefer to give for research to find a cure, please consider specifying your gift is for small cell lung cancer research.

When David was in about 9th grade, he did some research on trumpet players in heaven, and he told us then that someday he would be one of them. Heaven has a new trumpet player now.

Thank you, everyone, for your prayers, good wishes, and happy memories of our very beloved son David.
