David Beabout would have celebrated his 16th birthday on May 13, 2015. However, on Thursday, April 9, 2015 David passed from this world to begin his eternal reward with Jesus and all the Saints. The B.D.student body, faculty and staff, along with David’s beloved sister, Katlyn, took time to celebrate the life and love that David shared with everyone that he met during his brief time on earth.
We prayed joyfully, we sang joyfully, and we remembered to continue to pray for David and to David because his love remains.
To conclude the celebration, the Freshman Class presented to Katlyn, on behalf of their parents, a plaque for the Bishop Donahue Wall of Support honoring David’s memory, and a set of memorial wind chimes that read “Always in Our Hearts-Class of 2018”. Also, Katlyn organized a balloon launch that took place on Logan Street where all students sent a message to David through the spring sky attached to the balloon strings.
We also extend our thanks to all Diocesan and local schools who celebrated David’s birthday by holding Green and Gold days in David’s honor.
RIP David-We miss you-Beaboutit!
