    Our thoughts are with you all during this very difficult time. I can't believe Dave was taken so soon, far to young. I cherish my memories of Dave pulling up in his Corvette, praying he'd take me for a ride. Dave lived life while he was here and was blessed with a special wife, kids, grandchildren and family. He will be truly missed here and welcomed with open, loving arms by many on the other side. xo
