Our deepest sympathy to Colleen, and family. We , my father Joseph (Jean) , and my sister and I had the pleasure of getting together with extended family some years ago. I am grateful for the opportunity to meet David and Colleen. I remember hearing about their lives in Mass and in Florida, and their lives together over the years. I enjoyed hearing them speak lovingly about their children and grandchildren . With heartfelt sympathy to you all.

David was a lifelong friend. My best man at my wedding. And a Sunday morning team mate for flag football. We enjoyed a lot of child play together and will miss him. RIP Dave
