Oh Dave how I miss you. My big brother, my protector, all through the years. You suffered so much ...and...you fought so hard, but it wasn't meant to be. Your time to rest and to be with all your loved ones, especially Cindy, Bill, Cathy, Dad and Mom. I love you with all my heart and soul and will forever cherish the days we spent together at the hospital. I love you Dave.
