‘My heart is at peace because his pain is now over and the real victory has been won because I know he is now with his Lord and savior, Jesus Christ. He fought so hard to stick around for me, my brothers and his grandchildren.

‘He would often say to me. “God has so much in store for you, and I want to be here to see it”.’

David’s mother died five years ago. The actor is certain that his parents will now meet again: “Although I will never completely get over the fact that I lost him, I am glad that he is now back with my mother. He loved her so much.”
