David's Mother Reminisces:
"David was born after his Daddy's death in January of 1972. He never seemed to get over it. He had ten other brothers and sisters, out of which two of them died also -- his younger sister Sarah passed at six months and older brother Daniel at the age of sixteen. Death always played a prominent role in our family. He married young and had a son, David Mack Branch ..He was so proud ...Soon after his wife divorced him and moved his son to Kentucky; and he really never got over that. He loved his son more than life itself. He talked to him every day but hardly ever got to visit or see him... He then took his own life with an overdose of pills. We miss him so and will never get over his loss..."
