You were the best neighbor anyone could ever ask for. Thanking God daily for having known you the past 3 years. Always looked out for our packages when we were out of town. We will miss you so much.
Like a good neighbor; you were always there!
Love, Jeff & Denise Holland

Mr. Dave always had such a warm smile and gentle word for everyone who came through the door at the Hospital. It was a joy to see him when we came out of the coffee shop in the mornings after work. He would always tell you to "Have a great day and get some sleep!" I will always think of him when I hear that now. Please know that I am praying for his family and I know that he will surely be missed. God Bless you all.

I met Dave working with him as a volunteer at Jackson Hospital. Dave and I had a great time together, cutting up. One of the things I will always remember about Dave was his generosity. He was a sweet and kind man, always ready to help others. Dave and I had something else in common; we both loved dogs and his little guy was so spoiled. I hope someone will take good care of him as Dave would really want that. When we are able to return to Jackson Hospital in our volunteer capacity, I will sure miss working with Dave. Rest in peace my friend.

Sending my condolences to the family of Mr. Dave. I had the opportunity two years ago to volunteer with him a few times. He enjoyed helping other people and always kept a smile on his face and pleasant approach of visitors.

Mr. Dave was a very special part of the volunteer services at Jackson Hospital. He was lovingly nicknamed “The Mayor of Jackson” and loved sharing stories of his wonderful travels and his doggie Elton. We made him an honorary member of our registration department and he was adored by us all. He will be sorely missed! Strength and peace to all his friends and family.
