Mr B was such a delight to have around. His sense of humor was fantastic and he was always so kind and sweet. He will be missed so very much. Big love to his family and friends, his absence will be a big void. Much love.... Jade Breault

To David's family, sorry for your loss. Jeremiah 29:11, 12 assures us that God is thinking thoughts of peace towards us, to give us a future and a hope, and that if we come and pray to Him, He will listen to us. May that bring you comfort at this difficult time.
