Dear Shirley and children, I was so sorry to hear of Dave's passing. He was a terrific guy and I always enjoyed our chats especially when he came into the flower shop to buy his lottery tickets. We always had a good laugh about whatever was going on at the time. I know he thought the world of his family and loved all of you. You have my deepest sympathies. May he rest in peace. Dawne
