hi,

my name is Denise, also Dede, I am one of David A's sisters. David encouraged me to join the LC help site and to post something numerous times but i never did until i posted his death notice. sorry to have started out like that. David received so much support and love from the friends he met on this website and now that i can no longer talk to him directly or email him i get comfort reading the things he posted to the site and the responses from others to his posts. Tomorrow is David's funeral and i am not ready for it. he was my brother and my friend and i miss him terribly. :(:cry:

Dede,

I can only imagine how much you are going to miss this fine man, since so many of us that never met him are going to miss him so much.

Stay with us and tell us the funny stories you know about your brother.

Welcome, Dede,

David reminded me of one of my brothers. I can only imagine how you are feeling.

I'll be thinking of you all this afternoon during the time of his service.

Much Affection,

Fay A.

Welcome, DeDe! I hope you will stay with us. David was a very valued part of our family here, so we will miss him also. I have lost both my siblings, so I know the pain of that loss. I wish you and your family well. Don

Dear Dede,

Oh kiddo, I know what your feeling. I lost my sister at the age of 43 to lung cancer 16 years ago, and I STILL MISS HER!

Your brother David was so many things to so many of us. A friend, a gentle kind man, a concerned friend, a supportive guy, a happy man, a jokester, and always but always very very positive and up lifting to so many of us. Dede, I too will miss your brother. I have never had a brother, but he was a brother to me, and I am sooooo very thankful I got to know him and call him my friend.

My heart aches for you and your family. I honestly feel your pain.

I am so sorry we lost such a wonderful guy!!! :cry::cry::cry: He will be missed dearly!!!

Dede,

I'm so glad you've decided to join us . . . maybe it'll make the pain of losing David a little easier for those of us missing him so much, and hopefully you'll find some comfort as well. While every situation is different, I do at least know something about what you're dealing with . . . I lost my dear brother, TBone, only two weeks ago today. I've thought about you and your family many times today, as I know how difficult the day has been for you.

When you have a chance, I hope you'll go to the "General" forum and read the thread of messages I started and titled "Fun in Heaven." Please forgive me for taking a little liberty given that I didn't really know David . . . it was simply a therapeutic post for me during this difficult time.

Know that there are many of us who care deeply about you and your family. Let us know how we can help in any way.

Blessings,

TeeTaa

God Bless,

Hi Dede...

It's going to be a hard time- theres no doubt. We loved David so much- he was always here, no matter what he was dealing with, always here for all of us. We can be here for you if you let us. I wish I could have made the funeral, please know that his entire family is in my prayers.

Welcome~

You are so welcome here. I hope we are able to provide some comfort. We have met and I can say that the warmth and compassion we came to know and love in David is a family trait. Again, I am so very sorry for all of the pain and loss suffered by your family. I know your family still has a very tough road ahead and I hope we are able to ease some of the difficulty by sharing some of our memories of your wonderful brother.

I don't know that anyone is ever "ready", Dede.

I'm so sorry for your loss. It is evident the impact that David had on people.

Best to you always,
