Tom, not sure if you remember your old cousin. I lost track of you after I heard you went into the navy and your dad after he left Columbus. So sorry he is gone. Hope you are well. My email address is [email protected] if you want to reconnect.

Dear Pam and Tom, I am so saddened to learn of David's death. You have my heartfelt sympathy goes to you in your loss. David and I go back a long, long time, as neighbors on Micklethwaite Road, McKinley Grade School, PHS, and later living and working in Portsmouth. Growing up, we played together with our other neighborhood boys in the vacant lot -- softball, touch football, kick the can in the evenings. We enjoyed sleepovers, hiking in the woods and playing "army", and catching tadpoles in the creek. David remained a really good friend of mine all my life. He will be missed. Rest in peace.
