My Dad,
You have been taking away from me one year ago. NOT one day have I not thought of you. I miss talking to you telling each other our jokes.
That was our last hug. Miss you Dad, Miss u so much.

I had many good times with 'Snapper' especially skiing at Brookline and other slopes. Had many other good times. Sorry I cannot be there for the service

I love you Gramps and miss you terribly. You are always in my memory and I hope that while you are looking down on me I am making you proud!

I also worked at Nassiff's with Dave and Peg. Suffice it to say, I really didn't have much direction at that point in my life. Dave had a tremendous influence on me at that point in my life. There is a long list of words to describe his character, personality, patriotism and traits and the thing I learned just from being around him. I think if I had to sum it up in one word, it would be "Consistent".

He was a great man and a Great American. God Bless you Bell's and family!

I worked with Dave at Nassiff's in Willimantic for 13 years. He is easily one of the most interesting people I've ever met. He had stories that would leave you mesmerized. He seldom spoke of his years of service, though he was very proud of it. As a young punk fresh out of college, I learned a lot from him. He was honest, forthright, and always himself. He spoke his mind, and you always knew where you stood. I'm very proud to have known Dave, and am the better for it. My sincere condolences to Peg and the rest of the Bell clan.

David and I went through the Pepperell schools in the same class. At one point he and Harry Dean Newell and I were the cofounders (and only members) of a hunting and fishing club – very fond memories. The first time I ever fired a shotgun was Dave's .410 bore shotgun – we were probably around 12 or 13 years old at the time.
Last time I saw him was at a 50th reunion of the class of 1946. I truly regret being unavailable for the service on September 14th.
