I always liked hearing "Dave from Texas" call in to the Power Hour Talk show. He had such great stories and such a wonderful radio voice. Later we were lucky to read some of his writings on the Power Hour Website. In November I was sorry to hear through an email communication with him that he no longer had the strength to submit any more writings. Though never having personally met him I feel the loss of a friend. I thank him for his stories which always brought a smile to my face. May he rest in peace.
