David is proud of his calling and lives by the Golden Rule of funeral service, treating people the way he would want to be treated in a most difficult time.
"A family has trusted you to help them through the toughest thing a family has to go through. We have our word and our actions; it's how we are judged. You treat people the way you would want to be treated in a most difficult time. No matter what is going on in your world, the people you are serving need you, and you must do everything you can to help them."
