  1. This is my little cousin. He was born may 26th 1992 three years to the day after me. I will never forget the day he died and the pain everyone felt. I actually was living with his dad Chris Carr at the time and was downstairs when his dad got the call that something happened to David. In the back of my head I knew something bad had happened but I kept hoping I was wrong. When I got the news I froze for about a minute before falling backwards into his dads chair. Later that day I walked around my room crying one minute laughing the next and punching the wall the next. He was like a little brother to me. At his funeral I held back my tears because every time I started to cry I could hear his voice telling me to stop and him laughing.
