    Usually, when all of us guys would hang out together, I was a chatter bug. David would always be laughing his ass off. Right now I am lost for words. ROFLMAO!....Jared will get it.

    David closed A LOT of MY deals! Hes a kind person. My best girlfriend, told me yesterday...that David came to her rescue, holding a big stick, ready to protect her, because someone was breaking into her home. They were neighbors, at the time. Hes a good guy. And, when we were housemates, he was caring and respectful...over the years, he checked on me to make sure I was doing well. Thank you, David Genzel.

    David was my best friend. Ever. I knew him for more than half of his life. We went through ups and downs, laughs and tears. We did so many things for our first times together. I know that your in a better place now David. Even though I may not be able to grasp why this happened the way it did, I know that your at least not in pain anymore. Now you can look down at all of us and smile. I’ll see you again someday bro. I love you so so so so much.

    We are all going to miss you. Circumstances like this leave us with extreme sadness, anger, a million questions. You left us way to early but you will never be forgotten. We had alot of good times and laughs together. Just recently joking about helping bring in the grocerys and a funny clip from SNL where Jimmy Fallon breaks character in a hot tub with Will Ferrel. I loved the relationship you had with your sister. You guys still messed around like you were kids again. We are all going to miss you alot but we know you are in a better place. Rest easy and we love you.
