Glenda and I hope you are doing well. Dave was an incredible influence on so many fellow Warriors. His love for you showed many times.

You are in my prayers Sherry. Your husband was such an inspiration and loved by so very many people. I hope that our prayers have been able to give you some comfort.
Please let us know how you are doing. I know we are all keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.

Dear Foster Family,
It was when I was diagnosed with RCC in December of 2006 that I came across David's blog while doing my research on the disease. I seem to be doing just fine now, but I have been consumed with the death of my father from lung cancer (He passed away on Good Frday, 3/21/08) I am sorry to come to this site now to read the news of David. I always enjoyed reading his thoughts and will miss them dearly.

I pray for you all during this difficult time and I hope that you get through knowing that God takes care of all who believe in him.

God Bless you!


You have been in my thoughts daily. Try not to be overwhelmed by those that cared about your husband..especially those you didn't know. Our contact with him was important..but it was clear in his writings..who he depended on the most in the I think of you often..and hope that you find a bit of peace everyday in the fact that you were by his side. Take care Sherry..I know many of us would like to hear from you when you feel up to it.
