David graced the world with his presence on New Years day 1954. An event celebrated around the world by many who who didn't even know it. He survived against the odds being given up as a lost cause by a doctor  a priest. He didn't know why but he was destined to meet another born 10 years later in a far off land who was also written off by a quack doctor  but not by her mother.      Together they have three bright, beautiful children Two girls and a boy. Eldest girl finishing double degree  and job for next year. Second girl a diploma in civil engineering with own office at Construction company specialising in Asset management He has a guardian angel he has kept busy over the years with his unlikely proportion of scratch less accidents including a collision with a car when on motorbike and causing more damage to car than bike. He has three children
