So many memories of my first friend's big brother. Patty and family, from Lincoln Ave to Washington St, I have been blessed to call the Sanfords my friends and neighbors. Sending love, prayers and strength to you all. Blessed to have known the man in uniform.

Dave is one of the finest, most honorable guys I ever met. He and Margo moved to Kansas a long while ago but we were fortunate to reconnect on Facebook. There were more opportunities to appreciate his Boy Scout National Jamboree volunteering
and stories about Steve and Danny’s children.
Prayers to Margo.

David was one of the nicest guys when we were all in high school at Edgewood! He was an upper classman but always said hello and had something nice to say and of course with that big smile on his face! I know he will be missed by all. Sending love and sympathy to his family!
