"David was my soulmate," McCready said in a statement.

"He was a precious gift from God to all of us and, yesterday, he returned home and is now with his mother and father. David loved and was loved."

"Those who knew and loved him will miss him; those who did know know David missed the opportunity to know a truly loving and gifted man."

A rep for McCready says thta that no funeral plans have been made, but that services will likely be held in Arkansas, where the couple resided.
