    Hi Karen, not sure if you remember me, but we worked together in Final Assembly, Dept 245 at Electrolux 11/03/1997. I met David thru Shirley Brooks, and him and I hit it off and became good friends. I can remember how much fun that department was. We were family there. I can remember how we celebrated everything and how much it broke my heart when Electrolux closed it’s doors. David was such a good friend to me and I will always remember him. I am so sorry for your loss. You and your family will be in my prayers.
