I've always had a big spot in my heart for Dave. We met in 1989 i believe . We lived together for 11 Years and we worked together at the californian for 6 years. We were engaged for 6 years. But i guess it wasn't meant to be.I loved Dave dearly he was the kindest man I ever new. We cared deeply for each other and kept in touch through the years. in fact i just got a birthday card frome him the other day. He was great with my kids and he was always there when i needed him. My kids and I loved him and miss him we will always remember what a loving father and grandfather he was. On behalf of me and my kids i send condolences Glenda ,luci,and his grandchildren i know he loved very much. He is with his son now and i'm sure they are looking down on us living a peaceful life.Hes in a better place now. I'll never forget him or his kindness, he helped me so much and always made me feel loved.

Dear David,
As your ex-wife, you know that I loved you and always have and always will. The love changes as we go through our lives. I grew up with you when we were married and I was 20. 23 years together. Even after we were divorced, there was a special place in my heart for you and you for me. We knew that and we continued sharing family birthdays and Thanksgivings and Christmas's.
I love my husband Fred dearly. He is a good man and I want to spend the rest of my life with him. That doesn't mean I don't hurt big time. I never expected you to pass away. I guess I expected you to live forever and I miss you. Glenda

Dear Glenda and Lucy and family, I remember the first time we meet David. It was at National Cash register. Oh so many years ago. Then when he went Denver, Co. for training. Allan and I were there also for training. We found him his apartment just down the street from us. This is where he met Glenda and he married her. He became an instant father with his daughter Lucy. Such found memories. May David be forever remembered by many of us. God bless all who mourn David. Remember that there is Life after Dearh.
