This is a sad story. This unfortunately is my little brother. I'm haunted by who may have done this to him and how long he may have laid there before someone found him. My brother died the day before my 40th bday. I pray his murder does not go unsolved.

Cindi and Jan, we are all very sorry for your loss. I wanted to let you know that I was with Operation THUGS, the group that ministers to the homeless, and before we went out last Saturday, we all (about 20 of us) held hands and prayed for your loved one. We prayed for his soul and that he rest in peace. May God provide you comfort.

I knew David because of my job,he was always so sweet, we would just talk and talk! He was always so upbeat and happy and he was one of the nicest people i've ever met. I'm so sorry for your loss.
