From my family to yours we are so very sad for the loss of Dave. He was always happy to see me whenever I'd run into him whether it was at my job or somewhere else we both happened to be. He always gave me a rose when I was pregnant, he was so sweet. Dave is definitley missed and will never be forgotten.
