Dear Family,

I was so sad to see this obituary.  David Akers was one of the funnest and funniest people I knew at Robertsville.  He was in my chorus class and was always cutting up and making everyone laugh.  He may have even substituted some song lyrics.  Once he let me curl his hair with hot rollers.  I send my deepest condolences on your loss; may the Holy Spirit be with you during this difficult time.
