David had the kindest heart and an even deeper soul. His smile lit up the room. Carina, so, so sorry, I just heard! Know that you made his life much better than it ever was! It was obvious to me back at Moweaqua that you two were made for each other.

See you on the high ground, soldier. Until then, please seek out and find those brothers and sisters in arms who went ahead, link up, and take care of one another.

Working with someone as closely as we do in the field it is indescribable the feeling of losing a member of our medic staff. Early mornings that heralded long days that blurred one into the next and knowing that person is there when a call goes out. It was honor to have David with our team this past year. The cadets and staff alike loved him. We are better for having known you David. God bless you Carina as He carries her through this most difficult time.
