Dear Roz,
I was so sorry to learn of your father's passing. He was a dear friend of my father's, Doug King. They now rest together among the "stars" where I am sure they are fondly remembering all of the memories of their life's work together. Please know I am fondly thinking of you at this time. Rita (nee King) Jones and Family. My apologies for not knowing David's passing. I would have come to pay my respects as you were so kind to do for my dad. Love, Rita

Dave was in my life as far back as I can remember. Dave and his wife Evelyn were best friends with my parents. Dave was a music talent of the highest order and a music legend. He was also a beautiful loving person. I have so many wonderful memories of Dave. I loved him. My deepest heart felt condolences to Roz and Lyn.

I grew up a few doors away, never put the name on the records to the name of the neighbor until the early 90s... as in 20 years after I left high school. I really do regret not have ever personally thanked Mr. Appell for the great music.... the house band he led at Cameo was ferocious! Well, it's never too late... THANK YOU for all the great sides...
