I've been a fan of his for some 41 years. When I found out about his death I was in shock. It felt as if it was a family member. In reality to me it was. I loved him sooo much. I felt like we were kindred spirits. In my opinion he was above and beyond any other artist. His music gave me many great times in my life. I will never ever forget you bro. God bless you dear David... my deepest condolences to you Iman, Duncan and Lexi. May GOD give you peace in your souls .
