Dave, my precious brother, you still live in my heart and the hearts of your nieces and nephews. When you passed, a part of me went with you. You were not only my brother, but a dear friend. You would have been there even for the one who took your life. I guess God felt you had filled your purpose on this troubled earth and wanted you there with him.
