David, by Pascal (April 2021)

I would like to share with you my testimony of Love and gratitude … On April 25, 2021, my brother of heart David joined eternity… 

For a year, struck by an incurable cancer, he did not stop fighting for Claire and their three sons in order to be able to say goodbye to them as well as to all his relatives and friends! Rather than showing his suffering, he continued to give so much Love to others and expressed a huge thank you for all the messages of support he received. For 51 years, he had received the Love of his parents, then of his wife and his boys and, as soon as he met a person, he joyfully shared this Love without counting! In your eyes, each person felt important …

For 23 years, you gave such energy to the weakest (clown for sick children …) and the most deprived in Romania like the Roma people, abandoned of all, whom you considered like brothers of the same humanity! David fought against all types of injustice with admirable faith in God and also in humans! He saw the good in others and believed in the strength of Love, sharing, forgiveness, mutual respect and humor … His confidence, his smile and his optimism were communicative! Even if he left too soon, the spirit of Love that he sowed in so many hearts will continue, for sure, to bear fruit …

I suggest a few simple things you can do every day when you meet someone, such as: a positive word, an outstretched hand, a joyful smile, a benevolent look, a thank you, … In this difficult period, let us not forget the lonely people, the old people, the foreigners … let us hear from them or try to help them … Let us follow a path of tenderness, the one that David, by his given Life, showed us! Let us do good around us, go beyond our limits because we are capable of it, let us listen to our heart which only wants to give and live Love on a daily basis …

Dear FRIEND, your Love will live forever in my heart and an eternal THANK YOU for ALL the Love you have given them and me …
