    We were so saddened to hear of Dave’s passing! We will miss our conversations and many laughs. When I was fighting my cancer battle for the second time he always told me “you got this” and I would tell him the same. We have fond memories of the times we spent with him and Tricia, especially our Maine trip! . Rest In Peace our dear friend, until we meet again!
