Me at the "Reading Center" next door at the YMCA in 1971

I was part of this program back in the early 70's. Work at the YMCA through this program. Was ran by a black pastor and I was the white teen in it. Don't remember Mr. Yorke but sorry the lost. Does any better know the name of the pastor who ran it back then? It turn my life around. How is program doing these days? God bless

Agnes and family. Sorry for your loss. We had many good times together many years ago.

Thinking of Agnes and all the family. I graduated from grade 8 with Dave and Agnes and have remained good friends through the years.

Dear Aggie, I never had the opportunity to spend much time with my family out there. I know my Mom Maxine thought the world of You and Dave. You both were always so thoughtful in remembering her on holidays. She spoke of you both often. My deepest sympathy goes out to you and the family during this difficult time.
Love Tom & Jolayne

Jane and Family,

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. You are all in my prayers. May God's love touch and embrace each of you during this difficult time.

I was hired by Dave as program coordinator of Diivision of Youth Services under his direction at the Neighborhood Youth Corp in the early 70's. Dave was a kind and compassionate mentor and friend. I will always remember the early 70's as a time when the "Great Society" began and Dave's leadership brought youth counseling and employment to the Berkshires.

My sincere sympathy. I worked for years with Dave at Berkshire Training and will always remember his warm smile, positive example, and how he cared so deeply for people he worked with in the programs.

Nancy,Jane,Dave,Thane,Chris,you are all in our thoughts & prayers.Bill & I are so sorry for your loss,know that your Dad will always be with you.
