    I offer my sincere condolences to you Mrs. Fulton and to your entire family. I worked with David at Baker Tilly. David was quite a character, often sharing jokes and riddles. He would often stop by to catch up and often talked about your beautiful family. He was so very proud of his children and grandchildren. He always shared pictures of you all and told lovely stories about the girls. I will miss his visits, his riddles and the laughs that followed. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
