To the entire Hoyt family: my deepest sympathy of your loss of David. I saw him only occasionally in passing, but he always asked me how I was doing. He was kind and funny and we talked about how the family was, especially after the loss of Jack and Mom. He knew of my losses and would listen. I considered him a friend. He will be missed by all who knew him, especially with that smile! God rest his soul and may God be with all of you.
