The crowd laughed when student ministries pastor at Heritage Baptist, Kent Gregory, said, "I will miss his dignified ways and his monstrous belching." "David I love you man. I really do... I can't wait to see you again," Logan said. Matt Durran, Metzler's brother-in-law, said, "He was rapidly becoming more of a peer to me who I had great respect and admiration for." Family says he was a genuinine person. "He was more than a good son, good brother. He loves his 3 sisters...he would do anything for his sisters," Metzler's father said.
