We are shocked by this tragedy. We were hopeful he would come to Charleston and spend a few weeks with us, as we had talked about last year when he was here.

We just don't know the words to convey our feelings, but God does. We are praying for all our family for God's healing hand!pep

Davis was very friendly and very personable. Of all my granddaughter's friends, Davis was most friendly and helpful too, He once swept my balcony so I could grill out. We shared many a dinner with him. I am so sorry for your loss. I hope God gives you some comfort and helps heal your hearts.

Davis was one of the best football players I ever coached. He was eager to learn, listened, knew his role on the field and led the team in tackles as a middle linebacker. I remember most how well he got along with all the coaches and his team mates. Davis was a player to be reckoned with by all opposing running backs in the league. I won't forget Davis. God Bless you all.

Mrs. Beasley,
I'm so deeply sorry for the loss of your precious baby. I can't even imagine the pain you're feeling. I never knew your son personally, but I know you from Creekview, and this breaks my heart for you. You are such a sweet lady, and your kindness has always been something I admired. I pray that God will put his angels around you, so you'll feel peace and comfort and love and even joy at the memories you have of your son, and I pray God will soften the heartbreak you must be feeling.

Dear Beasley Family,

My prayers are with you at this difficult time. I believe that the gentlest of souls are lost to us because of the harshness of this world. But God knows them and loves them. He will keep these precious souls safe and well loved until we see them again. May God's peace and grace comfort you, and know that you will see Davis again in a far better place than this.

Love and Peace,

Julie May

It is apparent that David will be missed by family and friends. No words can express the emptiness a parent feel when they loose a child. My condolences to all. The Bible tells us that our loved ones can live again. John 5:28,29. The Bible also called God the source of life psalms 36:9. So being the source of life to all living creatures he can certainly restore life to someone who has died. The bible also teach us that we will be reunitrd to our love ones in a paradise on this earth Psalms 37:11. What a wonderful time that will be. May the peace of God be with you in this time of need.
