I am so sorry for your loss. Dave meant the world to me and I enjoyed each conversation. After checking on me and asking about my latest published children's book, he would then update every conversation speaking highly of his family, his adventures and the latest stock market report.
Sending prayers and gentle hugs for all. I am so sorry.

I had the privilege of meeting Dave at my brother's wedding about 5 years ago. I really enjoyed his wit & sense of humor. He made an impression on me. I'm just so sorry for your loss. I'll be holding the family close in prayer.

I am so sorry for the loss of David. I've completely lost touch with him since high school. I know he will be greatly missed. He was a good friend during some very formative years in my life. Shooting hoops, climbing the hills, playing tennis, riding bikes, playing football and baseball, shooting fireworks, you name it, we did it and had fun. Praying that God will comfort those that are left behind.

Rhonda and Family: I am so very sorry for your loss and am also sorry for those of us who know David. He was not only our financial advisor but our friend and I would trust him with my life. He was such an amazing person who was always so upbeat and he took the time to know all of us personally. I will miss his humor and his concern for my well being after Jim, my husband, died and he checked in with me often. David was taken from all of us much too soon. My heart and prayers are with you.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I have known David since the summer of 1977. Such a nice guy. As he would say "A Dear Friend" of mine has passed on.
