To Dave's Family, I was very fortunate to meet Dave during rehab at Cameron over a year ago. Dave was always talking, sharing stories about his life, his family, sports, and he was always smiling! We would run into each other at Meijer, Club P, and of course at the hospital. i am honored to have met him. No longer that I knew him, I know him as a kind and giving fellow. My sincere condolences to all his family. I am sure he will be terribly missed. God received one great angel! Peace be with you and God bless all of you.
