Dear Bernie, Tim and I were so saddened to learn of the news of Dave's passing. We enjoyed seeing him up north and always glanced down the lane to see if you guys were up when we were. We pray for you to find peace during this difficult time. I've been reading through the notes sent to you here, and see that Dave was much more than a hard working guy up north, who loved his family and his dogs and was generous to the community and local animal shelter. I wish we had the opportunity to know him better, and we believed we would once we moved up after retirement. We hope to see you soon, Bernie. Love and hugs, Tim and Laurie Traynor

I am very sorry to Dave's family for your loss. I met Dave many years ago while working at the Terrace Theater and I will always remember Dave for his kindness and humor. He made you feel comfortable around him, easy to talk to. I have many good memories of the times with Dave and Bernie and the rest of the gang from the Terrace.
