David if you are reading this, I am so sorry for you and your family. I know you must be hurting right now. I wish there was something I could do. I will keep yall in my prayers. Take care of eachother. And remember the great times, and the funny times together. I hope that helps. By the way, awesome that you did the race. Totally theraputical I think. I am sure it was something that motivated you all the way to the end.
You are so amazing David. Just remember Adam isnt suffering anymore, and is watching over you. His spirit stays close to you and gives you great peace with his passing.
God bless you.

By the way, when you were on Idol, my fav performance from you was Music of the night. Totally awesome vocal. Just like Randy said.
Take care.
From your biggest fan!!!!

I'm so sorry for the loss of your beloved brother, Adam. I know only too well how painful it is to watch a sibling vanish before your eyes when you tried so hard to keep them here out of love. I lost my sister to Leukemia 4 years ago. The years may come & go but I'm sure you'll keep Adam's memory so alive as you reach out to the world in his absence. I think you are an awesome human being and the greatest American Idol there is.

I learned about this earlier this morning. I am a huge fan of David's and have always felt touched by him and his love for his brother.

I hope David is doing well, as this is a very tragic loss. I'm glad that he still made it to the race in DC today and that his fans helped him raise over $90,000 towards brain cancer research.
