To Dave's family

I met Dave in Vancouver. He had a very kind heart- befriended the homeless, bringing coffee and sandwiches to them. He spoke of his love of skiing & JD. He returned to N. Bay to open his shoe store & for years I would receive a pair of shoes in the mail! Thinking of him on his BD, & wondering where he might be, I never imagined it was among the heavens. Peace be with you my friend. The world has lost a kind, compassionate, generous man who lived life to the fullest. May we meet again.

Dad, I miss you but see your good side in me every day. Wish you could have been with us longer to meet your now 2 grandsons. They are a ball of fun and keep us busy. You've been with me every ski-day and will be forever. Hope you enjoy what you see from above. Love JD
a very special person
