Kathy, Nancy, Kimberley and the rest of Dave's family, one who meant so much to you has passed on. I pray God's mercy for you at this time. Dave was one of my best friends growing up, fast cars together, our band The Barons with the Garrison brothers, groomsman in my wedding and more. We may not have been in touch as much as then, but our friendship endured. Rest in peace, my long-time friend. You are missed.
