I’m so sorry to hear that Dave passed away. He was truly caring, living and easy to talk to. He treated me and my kids as his own when we were around and I’m sorry I didn’t get to know him even better. Had I known about this we would have come to his memorial. Again I’m so very sorry.
Spiderman! Love you Dave!
