I remember Dave (and Terri) from our many years at the ALFAR Bowling League with CNA. This was back in the 1970's and 1980's. When I was league secretary, Dave was one of the nicest and most dependable team captains I had to rely on. He was a kind and gentle man.

Jennifer and Allison, Dave was my mentor at CNA when I started fresh out of college in 1992. He helped me through my first years at CNA as a programmer.
The photo gallery is beautiful. I am very sorry to hear of the loss of your father and I pray that the memories you have of him will give you strength through these difficult times.
