Prayers for Dave. Rich was a good friend to me many years ago. Haven't seen much of him lately, sad to say. He was a great person and will be remembered always. I can still see his smile and hear his laugh. We had a lot of those in our younger years!! I will miss him....but I know he is definitely in a much better place now. R.I.P old friend!
