I am very saddened to hear of Dave's passing, and so regretful that I did not reach out when he has been in my thoughts lately. I am ever appreciative of Dave's friendly visits over the years and his kindness and guidance to both of my sons when they came to help on the property when younger. He will be truly missed. My condolences to the family and to Shari during this difficult time.
