Ila, I am so glad David and I had our long phone conversation about a month ago. I will miss talking to him and telling him which side of the family different items belonged to. He was so good coming to see me when I was in the hospital using his lunch hour to come.
Getting together to go out to eat when in town. David was my first cousin and I remember when he was born. I will miss him. Will see you Monday if the weather permits
Love,
Charlene

Ila, I have so many good memories of David, from him coming to stay at our farm every summer when we were kids, to all of our breakfasts together in recent years. He was certainly one of my favorite boy cousins. I'm so glad we continued to stay in touch and became more than just cousins, but also good friends. Brian and I extend our deepest condolences and prayers to you and the rest of the family. Weather permitting, I'll see you on Monday. Much love and many prayers.

Dave will be missed greatly. He pitched for the first team I ever played for and I played short stop. That was over twenty six years ago.
He would get so mad at me when I threw the ball ten feet over our first basemens glove and over the fence.
He would say "their only halfway there and no one cares how hard you can throw". 😭🤣😂 That softball was a lot different to throw than a baseball.
I hope he's pitching and slapping that ball around up in heaven.
