May the good memories live forever!

Wendy and family,
I will miss Dave's kindness, and laughter, and most of all his playing.

I will miss him and cherish the memories! I hope you cherish all your memories of him! He was a unique, soulful individual!

May your memories of the wonderful times you shared with your loved one comfort you and your family, today and always.

Rest in Peace..
