Dear Kathy,

I was so saddened to hear of Dave's recent passing. My heart felt full of fond remembrances of good days gone by, and of happy hours we had spent together.

Seems like ages ago now, but I always felt such affection for you guys. I still have that Screwball game, and my family has enjoyed playing with it all these years.

I wish you love, healing and peace.

I'm so sorry for the loss and the shock. He was a unique and interesting person who gave much love to others at work and at home. He was fun! I wish I could have seen him playing hymns on his player piano. He will be sorely missed. I treasure knowing him.
