I was so sorry to hear of David's death. He had a wealth of appealing attributes, but above all I found him to be a man of honor. He helped me enormously at a difficult moment in my life. I will miss him.

Dear Anita,
I am sorry to hear that Dave is no longer with you. He seemed so chipper when I talked to him a few months ago. I remember your wedding on graduation day Carole and I were married exactly 4 months later. After our children were all in school, she went to Nursing school and loves it. We live in Silver Spring Md and would love to see you if you ever get down this way. We will continue to pray for you and your family.

Dear Anita, Nikki, Dave, Dean and family,
I was shocked and saddened to hear of Dave's death. I have thought of all of you often and always considered you the nicest of friends.
Please accept my most sincere condolences.

My deepest sympathy for your loss. Dave and I were friends and classmates at the Naval Academy. Unfortunately, we never served together but I remember him fondly as a most special person. I am saddened to learn of his passing.

My deepest sympathy for your loss. I enjoyed working with Dave at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard prior to his retirement from the Navy and have many fond memories of our time there together. I will keep him and the family in my prayers.

Dear Dave, Tracy, Chris, Austin, Aaron, please accept my sincere sympathy for the passing of your father. It is with regrets that I can not be with you and your family tomorrow. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I must be away in New Hampshire tomorrow taking care of two of my daughter Debbie's pre school children. She is doing well while recovering from a medical procedure on Oct. 1. David and Tracy, I hold both of you dearly in my heart as I reflect upon our years together.
Love, Bruce Bridges, AKA DG "old man"

Hey Aunt Nita & family,

Sorry for your loss :(
He will be greatly missed.
Thank you for allowing me to come spend time with him before he passed away. I'm sure it was hard for all of you to take turns to be with him I know I did not want to leave when it was finally time so I can only imagine how you all felt...Hopefully he got to go peacefully with all of you around him. He always loved a big crowed...the more the better in his book :)

Uncle Dave I'm sorry you could not make it through this infection!! I am going to miss you very much although we did not spend alot of time together in the last couple years because of life getting in the way. I always appreciated your stop ins to check in on what was going on here in my life it made it feel as if I had seen you everyday up until the day you stopped in...I dont know what I am going to do knowing you are not here anymore...just the thought of knowing you were there was reassuring enough for me...I know we were not blood relatives but in my book we mise well have been all the sailing trips, you teaching me how to drive well before I needed to know :), all the advice and talks, the canoe trips, and in return
taking care of Kelsey I miss her alot too!! and taking care of your house everytime you went on a trip, and working for you at American Express although we did not see eye to eye at times through our mistakes but we always got through it and so much more...
Although you were my uncle you also were like a father figure in my life...and for that I will always be grateful...You must have been the most awesomest dad anyone could ever have or wanted. :) I will miss you alot and the fact that you picked my birthday to die on... I should be very angry with you!! but I am not. Someone told me on Saturday that since you could not talk that was your way of letting me know how strong our connection was...I really think this lady is crazy but I will go with that for now...until we meet again and then we will have a serious talk about this situation!! :)
I know now you are in good hands, pain free, eating all the food and snacks you want!! :) I hope you heard me when I told you to say Hi to mom and Kyle for me and tell them I miss them and love them very much! I just hope you did not suffer too much...I want you to know I love you and will miss you alot!! And my heart goes out to Topi poor baby he will be lost with out you!!! He was no Kelsey but he still loved ya :) Now you can go sailing again and take everyone up there with you have them make appointments or win a raffle just so they can go sailing with you... :)

Miss ya always & forever,
