15 years ago


My Brother-in-Law David Conner was over in Somalia when he was in an accident. My sister was in New York with my then almost 5 month old nephew Brandon. She calls to let us know. Davids brother Greg went to New York and the 3 of them came back to Ca. On Feb 13th my 18 y/o sister had to sign papers to have her 19 y/o husband removed from life support because he is brain dead. On Feb 15th David dies. On Feb 22nd we have his funeral. One of his friends in the military escorted David home. Davids services were at The Crystal Cathedral performed by Dr. Robert Schuller. David was buried next to his father who died a couple years earlier.
This is a pic of David in his Sr yr of HS.

Your welcome. I left out a lot, you know. I kinda just kept to the facts so hopefully we could read it without crying so much.
