Dave you and I were the kind of friends that could lose touch for even a few years at a time but pick up a conversation like it hadn't even been interrupted. Unfortunately we can't do that now. I am heartbroken to get this news today and really wish I was able to be with you in your final days. Til we meet again.

You're my best friend. You saved my life so many years ago. I was so happy to share my home with you when you needed one.
We had just reconnected after I moved and then you were gone.
I can't stop missing you.
Thank you for my life. I have an amazing wife, daughter and son because of that.
