The Love of my life...I will miss you ,,,
I know where you are and I know you and Tangee will be standing at the gate waiting for me and Davy....
I will be okay...I will stay strong...But a big loss in my heart...I know you love me and I have that to cling to....
I have placed a wooden cross in the garden by the water pond where we sat by many times to enjoy the out doors....
I know you are happy and well now...But I miss you so much.
I love you and will see you again.

I met David and Joy over 30 yrs ago while putting my bosses car in the Autorama. David and Joy were great and special people , They allowed me to help at the first Joy Rides . I just saw David and Joy at the 40th Spring Fling and we were talking about next year is last Joy Ride and I needed to be there . The street rodding world lost a great man but heaven gained a great man . RIP David and your family and friends will continue to care for Joy and your children!
