I don't know where to start. My thoughts and prayers are with Kandy, Keith and Angela. I have so many found memories of times with Dave over the past 35 years. Every time I think of them I begin to cry as I will miss you. I will never forget the heartfelt conversation we had in December. You telling me that I was family and you loved me. It meant so much to me you will never know.
I feel so sad for the loss for Kandy, Keith and Angela. Dave was a great husband and father. He talked of you all often and you could tell how much he cared for you all.
