Dear Family of Dave Williams,
I had the wonderful pleasure of knowing Dave during the many years that he was friends with my brother, Neil, and of course the years he spent caring for Bodhi. I will always remember Dave's joyous smile. It lit up his whole face. Since I live on Neil's street, I had the pleasure of seeing Dave often. I will never forget seeing Dave regularly drive by my house in his truck, Bodhi in the front seat at his side, both of them looking straight ahead into the horizon. Dave would give me a smile and a wave, and I always thought, "boy, is Bodhi lucky!" We were all lucky to have known Dave. He was a wonderful friend to Neil and our whole family appreciated his kindness and friendship (and his ability to get Bodhi to do whatever he was told!!)--I'm thinking of your family and hoping all your wonderful memories are helping you.
All the best,
Karen Hess
