Daves humour was one of a kind, We used to sit on his balcony throwing back a few and talk about Millstone life laughing about God knows what, but after I moved back to New Bedford from Fall River we lost touch, I wish i could tell you in the last text you sent me 2 months ago how much you was a good person and to keep your head high.

My short time in knowing Dave "T", he had the ability to bring together a group of people who at the time seemed separated as a whole, his unconditional love for others was so apparent. You'll be greatly missed my friend.
