    Our thoughts and prayers are with you Shauna and all your family. A life taken way too soon.
    There wouldn’t be a day go by that we didn’t look for David walking somewhere on Meadow Drive going or coming from home. Always a smile, rain, sun or snow, David would be there. We would tease him that he really made us look bad as we drove by in the car, racing somewhere usually of no signifigance.
    Will see you soon, Shauna.
