    It was an honor and pleasure to get to know and take care of David in his last months. He was funny and kind. He had such a love for his kids. Always excited to know they were coming to visit. He loved to laugh and pick on us girls. It was truly a blessing to have gotten to know him in the time I was granted.
    David was so ready, he said he lived so long and was ready. Blessing and Love to the Lovett family.
