Deepest sympathy to Dave's family. I just read about it today, looking for another & my ex recently passed. We were all friends with Dave. In fact at one time Dave rented a house from us. But alot has happened in the last 30+ years since I probably seen Dave. Plz accept my sympathy. But I'm sure the guys are partying as they are all together again.Rip Dave & may God grant favor over his family.

Loretta and Aleta- Words çannot express the dismay that l felt when l read about Dave. He was a good guy. Having recently lost my own brother, l am aware of some of what you are going through. I ask for God to give you strength and to hold you in the palm of His hand as you work through this. RIP, Dave. You will be missed.
