I knew David since he was 5 years old, I grew up two houses down in Le Mars, IA. Although I was David's brother Jeff's best friend, there were many years of fighting, football, camping and all around good times among us boys. My memorial to Dave and his family are...my two sons; Geofrey and David. You cannot, and will not, ever leave my thoughts.
