I met Dave at the Manor House after my father moved there several years ago. Dave and him became quick friends and was probably the reason my dad enjoyed his stay there. Dave was a good man always there for others and always there to liven things. May he Rest In Peace . Are prayers are with you . Jim and Michelle Rahn

We all have good memories of our parents to sustain us until we join them in Heaven. What a fine time that will be!
