I never met you uncle but I heard the whole story of how your fate began that fateful day and man it was dangerous from the start. And Uncle Dave I wanted to thank you for saving my dad before you succumbed to your injuries. If it wasn’t for you me and my four other siblings wouldn’t have been here today! And I wanted to tell you Happy 31st being in heaven! My dad said he wish he could’ve done more to save you but the damage was done and he can’t forget it. He loves you uncle! Mahalo Nui Loa and watch over the rest of your brothers and sisters risking their lives by being Honolulu Police Officers. Aloha Uncle David!
