Dave was like a second father to me and always had a kind word to say and a laugh to give. Made me feel at home in his home and had the best spaniah rice on planet Earth! Love you and I will miss you Dave! Sending love from Ontario Sylvia, Scott, Lauren and Charlotte

Hi Al-Jean and family. My deepest sympathies on the loss of David.As you know Dave and I go back a long time. We lived in the same apartment building for many years and they called me the sister they didn't have. We were pretty close in age-him being my senior by a mere two months. We shared school days and ball, tin can alley and hide and seek in Hatcher's yard just down the street so we weren't mere acquaintances. We were actually kind of like brother and sister.. I can honestly say I know what you are going through because I have been there. It never gets easy but you do learn to cope. I hope our dear Lord will hold you in the folds of his arms and help you all through these difficult days ahead. Keep his memories alive with the stories you will share and may God bless you all. Rest in peace Dave! Hugs to everyone!
