We always enjoyed David's ability to remember special stories about the Sundstrom ancestors and his unique appreciation of this family that extended themselves to him when it seemed he was let free without a father figure. The Lord was his true father and guide once he figured that out. It was always nice to hear about Walt Sundstrom, who he had great respect for- Walt was a WWII US Airfirce veteran, shot down twice over the Mediterranean Sea, and survived only to remain quiet mostbof the rest of his life. We know Walt served as a father figure to David at times. David overcame huge obstacles of confusion and uncertainty, only to become a real leader in finding the right path in life. We are proud of David and appreciated all his wisdom, courage and perseverance. He was ready to meet his heavenly father, We are sure. God bless his family with understanding and love.
