Dave Laidley was a free spirit man .I knew him mostly from my adolescence we were very close to each other and talked about life itself. I will always treasure his opinions we shared many good times and sad times. You taught me that not everthing you hear was spoken from the truth, Thank you for being a part of my life. I am so happy that he found his dream with Carla then went on to have a beautiful daughter and a son. You will always have a part of me and I will always have a part of you I feel for your family Carla , Amber, and TJ Thank You and we will meet again.

I have very good memories from when we all lived in the same building. It got my brother Dennis out of his room when he'd go and watch Jeopardy or a hockey game with you Dave, and Carla would be making food and inviting us both to join for a good meal and conversation. Dave, please say hello to Den and give him a hug for me please.
