    I thank all of you for being there for my brother Dave, and for being there for my Mom and Dad. I just wish Dave was still here. It’s Jan. 18th when I’m writing this, and the hurt still hasn’t gotten better. I wish I could trade places with Dave, after all, you all loved him and I’m the worthless one. I’m sorry Dave, I LOVE YOU DUDE!

    For Mr. and Mrs. Gleason, My heart aches for you at the loss of your beloved son, David. Years ago David and my daughter Valerie were close friends and he was often at our home. Valerie has two younger brothers and a younger sister and Dave was so kind and loving and patient with them. My son, also named David, loved to draw and your David would help him and encourage him and spend time with him. He was a beautiful young man and I know that God has His arms wrapped tightly around your son and all of you too. God knows how you feel–His Son died too. David’s loving spirit goes on in all of us. You created a beautiful son. God bless you both forever. Feel David’s spirit surround you. My love and prayers, Chari VandePanne

    I was so sad to hear the news about Dave. I hadn’t seen him in years. He was the definition of a true friend and his sense up humor could light up the room. I pray that God gives comfort to his family in this time of need.

    Gone but never forgotten my friend. The kindness you showed my brother and my family, driving him back and forth to night school. You are the goodness that our world so greatly misses these day. I drove home for work tonight thinking about what a pleasure of mine it was to just know you..
