I remember meeting Dave for the first time when I went to church with his daughter Christina as we just starting dating. I remember he was a bit intimidating as he was probably thinking who’s this with my daughter. He looked like he was straight out of a mob movie with his gold jewelry pinky ring and all. When I go up to indroduce myself he says “Hey how you doin” and that’s about all I got. However after many times getting to know him, spending time with him and his family, falling in love with his daughter, bringing his granddaughter Mia into the world who he adored, and all the vacations we all got to spend together he was a kind and gentle man. He loved family time. He loved all of us and wanted all the family to be together all the time. He wanted to make everyone happy and loved God. Christina loved him more than any other daughter could ever love their daddy. I’m am thankful for meeting his beautiful daughter and falling in love with her. I am thankful I got to meet him and know what a good man he was. Thank you Dave for bringing Christina into the world and thank you for accepting me into the family. I will miss you and I love you!!

Allow me to first say how my heart grieves over the loss of Dave. What a great husband to you, Amy, and Daddy to you Brandi and Christina he was.
I remember my first time meeting him. Christina was just a toddler and Brandi a few years older. I came to visit for the day from St. Cloud where I was teaching. I knew from your face, Amy, that he was the love of your life! When you came to Bedford for the twin uncles' birthday, Dave fit right in and won over the hearts of the uncles with his easy way of talking and demonstrating his love. We all loved him from the start and knew that he was sent from God! I know your hearts are hurting and so I ask the Holy Spirit to send comfort and quieten your anxious minds. He is with you in this great loss and will be with you always. Ed and I send our love and prayers. THE RAWLINS'...Ed &Cindy
