To my Zaidan cousins, sorry for your loss. My memories of Uncle Dave are all happy and laughter filled. He was a happy guy and teamed up with Aunt Rosie well. They were a fun couple. He was my Confirmation Sponsor and I took Philip as my confirmation name in his honor. I remember him as a funny person and a great sharpshooter. I started missing them the day they left Alton. So glad they're together again.
