I was just informed this morning that Dave passed away. I would like to offer my condolences to Dave's family. Our family knew Dave from Special Olympics and he will be missed and remembered by us. Dave was in the group of SO athletes we first met when we became involved in Special Olympics twelve years ago. More recently, we remember him as an important part of our volleyball team. I will always remember how he used to bring bottled water or snacks to games and practices for our team to share. I know his loss must hurt but please remember the many lives he impacted in a positive way.
