I first met David about nine years ago, as I was marring into the Mulder family. The thing that struck me about David and continue to this day, was his willingness to help anyone and offer a hand. He was also the official welcoming ambassador at any of the Mulder family parties…football games, birthdays, anniversaries, and of course sausage making. David always had a smile on his face at these gatherings and was genuinely happy to see everyone.
The other thing I loved about David, was how he loved to rib his dad. Whether it was about sports teams or the correct process of a home improvement project; and of course sausage making. Mike, it was great to see him put you through the paces–and I know you loved it too. David not only had a great heart, but he also had a big heart. He cared deeply for his family and this friends and would go above and beyond for them, as most of you in this room have experienced.
