Dear Lolo Dave,

Thank you for everything. You were always good to us; it made us think God must have wanted one of His angels back in heaven, that’s why you left us suddenly.
From now on, we can only reminisce the memories we have together and think that you are in a happy place forever.

We will miss you and we love you, Lolo Dave.
