Shirley and family, you have my deepest sympathy. Dave was a great and enjoyable person and I'm blessed that I was part of his life. I've known Dave for many years both from Warren Chrysler Plymouth and the many years I worked with him at Galeana's Van Dyke Dodge. I found out today of his passing and I wish I could be there this Saturday but other obligations will keep me from attending. I will say a prayer for Dave and his family. Bless you all.
