So sorry to hear of Dave’s passing. I had hoped to see you both at Don’s viewing but I understand I just missed you.
I remember growing up and spending a few days with them on the farm. As Dave and I were pretty close in age, he loved to tease me unmercifully. I have thought about that a lot in recent years.
As my kids were growing up and involved in sports/cheerleading, I would see him when Elgin played at Kenton. He was always fun to be around — probably my favorite cousin.
Sending my sincerel condolences to all. He will be missed.
Sending hugs and prayers
