    David you were a good friend of mine for over forty years, since we were 16. You will always be greatly missed. Your kindness and sence of humor, your ability to always be a “big brother” to all will always be remember. Forever in our hearts.You’ll always be known to my kids also as uncle gorilla, uncle Dave.
