Im going to miss you bro. Its been 30 yrs. knowning you. Going to miss you coming over in the dead of winter so we could get a fire going in my fire pit just to see how much snow we could melt while we were drinking beers. And the summer we were digging my pool 2 feet deeper while it was raining and stopped when the sun came back out because it was soo humid. Then back to digging when it started rain again. Like we always said "It doesn't rain on the Army. It rains in the Army". Love ya bro.

You fought the hard fight brother. You are at peace now. I wish that you had not left so soon, I with no time to say goodbye, but our memories will never die. I will miss you. I know the struggles were real, but you dont have to fight anymore. May God hold you tight and craddle; you in his arms. The pain is gone and now you can be at rest. Love you Dave.
