My Dear Sweet Brother, I don't know where to start. You were such a classy, intelligent, humorous, kind guy. You were a gentle sole, a lot like mom. I thought I'd be ok with you leaving us, only because of the terrible disease and what it did to you. But, I can see now, it's so hard even though I know you are at peace and with our beloved Brannon.
Dave, you fought that disease for so long with class and strength. But, in the end, it got the best of you.
I will always cherish our childhood together. Our childhood fights and our teenage days in the "club basement." Our adulthood family gatherings.
I know one day we'll all be together again. Your time just came way to early.
I love you Dave, I'm missing you so.
Love You Brother,
Sue
