    Dave your sense of humor and teasing will be missed. You were always a good, caring friend to my David and me. Waiting for you both to be resurrected and you can tell your silly jokes to Janet and I, because we are your loving devoted laugh tracks. You will be deeply missed, until than. Janet will be taken care of, just as you promised David you both would look after me. Jehovah and all the friends are seeing to that as well as your loving family and dear, sweet Andrea. So until we see you walking down the road in paradise, we love you. Mona

    Dave…You were undoubtedly one dear friend to me…when I least expected it, you would show up with a kind act & funny remark. I loved you and miss your phone calls, even when I left Ohio, you kept in touch. Always a loyal friend!
    See you again my friend….💜
