I was about 9 years old when Dave entered my life, thanks to my sister falling in love with his son, Dan. Since that time, Dave has been a part of my family, being with us most holidays and celebrations. It was tough to hear of his suffering and to see Dan and Peg suffering right with him, but know Dan and Peg and Dylan and Kayla, that you are loved and that you did a great job taking care of Dave. Although it was hard for Dave to say "Thanks" sometimes, know that you were definitely appreciated by him... I just know it! Love you all very very much!
