School Activities, Showing, Funeral, etc.

Today is a busy day for us. Ms. Burrito has to dress up as an Angel  with other students at church then after that we have to go to the school gym for their Halloween event, Mr. Burrito is part of it too. We won't be able to attend the showing of my BIL that is scheduled at 1:00-3:00 pm today but we are going there tonight for the showing at 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. Friends can leave messages for the family by signing the guest book at Greco-Hertnick website.  The photo below was taken the day before my BIL's surgery, the last Easter  we spent with him.
Lesson learned from this ordeal:  Ask a second opinion from other doctor about your pain.  When he was  having  severe stomach pain, the doctor told him that it was an acid reflux but it was actually the cancer that was causing his pain.  Your memory will remain in our hearts Dave, you're a great guy to cherish forever!

Surrounded by his family, David Jennings Cottrill, 57, of Weirton, passed away Wednesday, October 26, 2011 at his home. Born March 12, 1954 in Weirton, he was a son of Jennings Lee Cottrill of Weirton and the late Nadine Cox Cottrill. He was also preceded in death by his Brother Harold Cottrill.
