Hi Myrna, I am David's 1st cousin on his father's side. My cousin, Alice, just notified us based on your phone call to her. My mother, Cloe was Uncle Dolph's brother. I grew up in Missouri and Illinois so unfortunately only met David a couple of times in Reidsville and Siler CIty when visiting the family. I am four years younger than David. The last time I met David at his Aunt Joanne's house I was 18 making David around 22. I remember him as a big strapping handsome athletic guy. So sorry for your loss and wish I could have known David better. Please know you have our heart-felt condolences. Warmest regards, Steve and Holly Coon
