You have our deepest sympathies and are in our thoughts and prayers. I have such wonderful memories of Uncle Dave sitting poolside in Florida. He loved to get a tan. Theses memories will always be on replay for me to cherish. May your beautiful memories mend your broken hearts and bring you comfort. We love you Uncle Dave and we will miss you.
