They settled North Carolina where they currently resided. They were members of Christian Outreach Ministries in New Bern, North Carolina, where David would often lead worship with his voice that sounded like Elvis on Saturday mornings. But they both blossomed every time they had the opportunity to spend time with their kids. The California trips, the visits back and forth, and the phone calls and facetime where something they both cherished and still do to this day. Family was important to David.
