    I am so sorry I did not know of David’s passing until tonight 09/17/14. I was always a fan of his music. My wife and I dated to his music all the time. Bread was always a favorite group of ours. But I really liked his album when he went solo. My wife’s name is Ann and his song Ann was always one of my favorite songs on that album. I still listen to Bread a lot and I just wanted you to know how much he meant to one of his fans! God bless you and your daughter, Tommy

    My dear Judi –
    Norm and I were so saddened to hear of David’s passing.. We just didn’t realize the severity of his condition the last time we saw you. We loved having you as neighbors as both of you introduced us to Vermont. Always loved hearing David’s stories of flying and your trips to the air shows and of course, sailing.. We are sending you our love and sympathy. Jo-Ann and Norm

    Dear Judi:
    My heart is so sad for you. David was a terrific, quiet, capable guy. Now he can rest in peace and hopefully you can get a little rest too. You must be exhausted.
    Please know both Jerry and I are thinking of you and Amanda and that adorable granddaughter. Hold on to each other. and please count us as friends and neighbors who will do anything for you – just call or email. Many hugs, JoanO
