You are gone so suddenly from my life but you will never be gone from my heart. We had 35 years of friendship that spanned AK to FL for me and AL for you. As always, at a time like this I wish we had been together more often but I am grateful that we communicated on Thanksgiving day. The next time I see you, my friend it will be in the "great beyond" and I look forward to that too. I have lost a dear dear friend and the world has lost a truly good man. Rest in peace, Dave. I love you.
