    I met Dave when he was staying in South Carolina. He was a good friend to both me and Donnie. He also worked with my big brother, Brad, painting. We just lost my brother on October 4th to cancer, but Dave would still checked in on me to make sure I was ok. I’m so sorry for your loss, and I will keep your family in my prayers.
