I don’t know that I’ve made mention of this before now, but feel compelled to do so at this moment. One of my most treasured times at the lake was the day we Doyles teamed up with the Vests. That was when we still had our boat and Dave brought his pontoon. We anchored in the middle of the lake, shared a lot of laughs, and made some unforgettable memories. I wish I’d expressed this sentiment before now, though I trust that Dave knows what a great time we had. While he’s been called to join the Lord in heaven, he lives on in our hearts and memories. God bless you all.
