    Sorry I can’t be there cousin (Jim). My prayers are with you and family. I’ll miss David enough though out the years didn’t see much but when we did he open his heart with open arms. I always called David my Cuz and big brother. He would get a big chuckle over it. He was a cousin and great friend. His kind voice will always remain

    Dave was always a great guy and he was a such a good husband to Joni my cousin. He always opened his doors to me and my family whenever we came to Buffalo on vacation. And I talked to him on the phone quite often when on my daily walks just to keep in touch. He took such good care of Joni’s grave and the other graves from our family and I’m sure his sons will miss him terribly. My condolences to them and their family.
