Sorry to hear of Dave's passing, and out thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time. Dave was a great friend and a very good steel guitar player. He will be missed when we get back to northwestern Ohio, as I usually looked him up to recall the old times, when we played music together.

I'm honored to have worked with Dave. He even trained me how to unload trucks. I'll always treasure our love for animals that we had in common. We loved bragging about our pets to each other. He definitely loved Sandy and missed her very much. It helps to know he's reunited with Sandy and his sweet dogs. He will certainly be missed. My heart goes out to his family members.
