Dear Janet and Family, You are all in my thoughts and prayers as you go through this difficult loss in your lives. I include Lindsay and Luis in this as I know that Dave brought you all together as family. The last time I saw Dave, I visited him in the hospital with Luis and he was quick to show me pictures of the 'grandkids'. Such a proud PaPa! May the peace of God and the knowledge of a life well lived comfort your hearts.

Lindsay and Luis, I have been so grateful for the wonderful supporting father and father-in-law that Dave has been to the two of you. I first met Dave when I was working for Howell Schools and he was a textbook representative in our district. Our conversation then revolved around how happy we were that you two had found each other and how great we thought each other's kid was. Of course, we both agreed that our own kid was pretty special. On your wedding day we both rejoiced, and though we may not have said it to each other then , we knew that we would both continue to love each of you as our own. I will miss Dave and the understanding we had that as your dad, Lindsay, and as your mom, Luis, we want a life of joy and fulfillment for the two of you.

Dave will be greatly missed! Always fun to be around especially on the golf course! He and his basketball teammates back in my college days supplied the student body with much entertainment!
May he Rest In Peace!
