Such a dedicated husband, father, friend and brother. May the wonderful memories of a life well lived bring you comfort in the coming days ahead.
I knew David as the loving father of Kristin and Korean, in addition to his grandchildren who he took great pride in. He always has a warm greeting for me even though he did not know me well. His character as man was evident in the ways that his daughters and grandchildren loved and cared for him; in the same manner that he was cared for them.
So sorry for your families loss and hope you find comfort and peace in the reunion of your Mom and Dad.
Koren and Family my Prayers are with you during this time. May God strengthen you and provide his everlasting Love upon you. Marian Blue your SisterFriend!
I didn’t ever meet Mr. Pickett, but I knew of him through his beautiful daughter Koren. May he Rest In Peace, and may the family find comfort at this difficult time.
To Koren and Family: Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can not heal. Continue to stay Strong and Anchored in Christ Jesus 🙏 💘
