Peter and David,
My sincere condolences. May he now rest in peace with your Mom.
I’m so sorry for your loss Peter. You and your family are in my thoughts and I hope that as you celebrate his life and remember the gifts that he brought to the world, you find solace, strength in yourself and your family, and peace. Remember that we are here for you, and that we will support you so that you can support your family. Take care of yourself Peter.
Prayers for peace during this difficult time.
Such a loss. I met David back in the 60s while working in the Inspection Division of the DMV. He would be in my office almost every day bringing in defective equipment tickets. We became friends, always having plenty of laughs. Sometimes he was the only bright spot of a bad day. Eventually I transferred to a different department and didn’t see him much but thought of him so many times. He was the perfect gentleman. Always fun and able to turn your cloudy day into a sunny one.
Heaven has now gained the most wonderful, gentle, personable man I ever knew. I am thankful I had the pleasure of working with him. Rest in peace, Dave. You will be missed.
I pray God wraps his arms around the Lamberton family and guides you through this loss.
