I'm so sorry to hear of Dave's passing. I worked with him for many, many years at the White Haven Center. Over the years we developed a strong bond and had many conversations. Dave was witty and a devoted friend. On the day he died I visited him at his home and was disappointed that he had not answered his door after much knocking. His car was in his driveway. Now I know why he didn't answer his door. Sporadically, I would stop to see him and was greeted with that big smile and pleasant dialogue. I will miss you pal! Until we meet again. RIP "brutus"! It was a great run filled with humor and great stories.
