This is a tribute to David Bell, a
father, husband, and loving Pop Pop David who was taken
from us far too early. We keep this site alive in honor
of him, to keep us close to him, and to allow others to
get a quick glimpse of who he was. He will forever be in

the quality of our lives.
These pages will share our
experiences with you.
