In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always. I always enjoyed your company and the way you could tell a joke or story. I always looked forward to talking to you and the advice that you gave. You certainly had a lot of wisdom and were more then willing to share. I will never forget some of the lessons you shared. Rest in Peace. David
