Friday, June 19, would have been David Litsey Jr.’s 25th birthday.
To mark the occasion, his family and friends gathered at his grave in the St. Augustine Cemetery. Balloons were passed out with a message on the side: “It’s been a long day without you my friend, I’ll tell you about it when I see you again!”
As the family gathered to remember, someone read a poem, “The Loss of a Cousin.”
Everyone released their balloons, and David’s mother, Linda, led a prayer.
