Lois, I love you and Dave so much. You both have been a special part of my life over the years and I'm a better person because of it. I would love late talks with Dave at work over different books, history and politics. I know he was trying to educate me and I appreciated his efforts. Every once in a while I catch something and hear Dave's words come out of my mouth. Praying over you and for you during this difficulty time.

Dave Was A Quiet Man, Yet Was Very Diligent And Focused When Taking Care Of Patients, As I Had The Honor Of Being A CoWorker.
