    So sorry for your loss. I have a lot of wonderful memories of Dave and Marie. I had the opportunity to babysit Pat. So many memories when I was a little kid when my parents would see Dave and Marie at the Fletcher House oh such a long time ago.

    Going to miss you Dad! Glad I got to spend the last 18 months with you. I forgot how great your sense of humor was ( like grandpa) and how much you liked your chocolate and don’t forget the ice cream! Even Oreo misses you she still runs into your bedroom every morning.

    Couldn’t have asked for a better Dad and Mom and now you are in peace with Mom. We all miss you!
