I have only just found out that David died. So sorry.I met him years ago when he came to visit my Dad, James Gow, his cousin in Scotland. He really enjoyed his time in this country

As far back as I can remember, David was one of my earliest and oldest friends. His Mother and mine were best friends. He always kept in touch with my Mom and Dad. Thay thought a lot of him. He will be missed.
