David - your band Freedom played at my Sweet Sixteen party at St Mary's Catholic Church in the basement! I'll never forget feeling so proud that I had his live band able to play - not just records or a DJ, but Freedom. They were so cool, and then we were in class together during the day.

My condolences to your family- may you feel consoled as you transition to life without your beloved David.
