Barb, so sorry for your loss. Growing up next door to Dave was a joy in life, as we were very close up until I got married and moved away. He was best man at our wedding in 1963 and I considered him a life long friend even if we didn't see each other much after that. I remember meeting you and seeing him at the Sloan Fair in August a bunch of years ago. I can only share your grief but offer prayers for you and the family will find peace in his passing.
