David is a treasured friend and part of our family. I regret being unable to attend his service. He has caused huge shifts in my life and without that I would be less of the person who I am today. I am grateful to have known him and love him. I hope he is happy, calm, and peaceful now.
I hope that his family will understand his actions and hold no malice or guilt for he is no longer suffering.
Adrian and Judy Holman

Dr. Hawkins and Puala. We are so sorry for the loss of your Son David. May his soul rest in peace in the arms of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We thank God for the life of Billy David Hawkins.

David was one of my favorite 4th graders—always kind, considerate, and had a great sense of humor! I know first-hand the pain of losing a son. No parent should ever have to experience the loss of a child. Respect the power of grief and know that I share it with you! God bless you and yours. Denise????

I have no words. David was always an absolute joy who brought me so much laughter and fun. I never met Mr. David and Mrs. Paula, but I loved your son and the light he brought to the world. I'm praying for your family during this time.
