Dave we grieve because we love simply as that we love people throughout our life regardless of how our relationship ends. When we grieve the loss of a marriage from divorce we also grieve loss of the future and loss of life partner we grieve what might have been. Love Sandy

I met Dave at my parents Church, several years ago, but really got to know him, over the last few years. About 4 or 5 years ago, Dave bought a new Mac laptop and was having a hard time, setting it up. He knew I was into Apple computers, so he asked me if I would help him out with it.

Dave was also really into Astronomy and when I was at his house, he showed me his Telescope's and told me stories about how he would travel all over, Star Gazing.

After that we became good friends, and anytime he had a problem with his computer, he would always give me a call.

Dave was a really nice guy, and will truly be missed.
