“This is the Pendant his mom gave me, one she put on Goliath and one for me…..” She said….  “She told me that when you find someone who can be a good friend and support for her son give it to him…”

As David’s mom looked at his aunt she took the pendant and gave it to her….. “Give this to David… I know he will take care of Goliath”
