I tried leaving a message last week but it was probably too long. They wouldn't publish. Miss you. Wishing you were here to make me laugh.

I actually put up the tree this year. Don't know why. I had talked to someone about her Christmas decorations and as soon as I was off the phone I went down to the storage unit. Took me a couple days but I found everything. It will take even longer to put it all away I know. Not sure when I might start.

Another Father's Day yesterday without you. How sad you weren't in the company. John and the children were at Reid and Beth's house. It just isn't the same with you gone. Then coming home to an empty apartment. Damn I hate this.

I dream about you sometimes. I have no idea what that means, if anything. You remember that my dreams were always normal while yours were wild and crazy. I miss you every day and am still trying to figure out how to be alone . . .

I miss you every day. I miss your making me laugh. I hate that you are gone. Still trying to figure out how to be a widow. You were the best. Never will there be another like you.

I knew David from my visits to Big Beaver- when he was a young man, and I was a child. I lost touch with my cousins in later life, and it is entirely my loss.

I will hold fond memories in my heart of him, and it is clear that he touched many lives very profoundly. My condolences to his loved ones.

Condolences to Lorraine and all of David's other loved ones. I was saddened to hear of the passing of David whom I worked with for many years at the Alberta Legislature. I can still picture him in his role of getting ready for each day of session and I will forever remember his great sense of humour. Rest in peace David.

To David's family:
I'm so very sorry for your loss. I was fortunate to benefit from David's advice in the 1990s as a fellow member of the GoA. David's understanding of the workings of the legislature was unmatched. He could always be counted on to provide the very best advice in a kind, understanding, humble manner, no matter how busy his schedule was or how wildly his day was unfolding. He will truly be missed.

Lorraine and Family,
My deepest sympathies to you on David's passing. I worked with David for a number of years at the Legislature. We had weekly staff meetings and I always looked forward to his attendance. He was insightful, knowledgeable, and had a wicked sense of humour. He was a trusted advisor, honest and forthright.

I am very saddened to hear of your loss. As I worked with David for many years under the dome and have never forgotten him.
