I am so deeply sorry to hear about Dave. The moment I heard, the memory of my childhood came rushing back and all of the great memories of the family moving in to the house next door. Those were wonderful days and Dave added to them so much. I am so very sorry Lorna, I know you will miss having him around but know that Mom was there to greet him along with many others. I want to wrap my arms around you and the family and let them know that I will be praying for peace and healing of your hearts.
