  1. Oh my gosh Lynda… There are no words to say how deeply sorry I am for your terrible loss. Please know that I am keeping you and your family in my thoughts and I wish you comfort in the days ahead. I remember the good times we had getting together at each others’ house for supper and drinks with Lizzie and Don and Bill and Pat. Please call me if you ever need to talk. My most sincere condolences to my old friend.

  3. Lynda, Laura and family. We are so sorry for your loss and our family gives you all or sincere condolences.
    As long time neighbors we have gotten to know Dave very well and he was a great man with a good heart and was always willing to help with things if called upon.
    Our parents knew he was always there to help out with things if we weren’t around or just saying Hi and talk when Dave was out in his garden. Except for the last few years when dad couldn’t garden anymore, he and Dave would always be talking and comparing their crops and trying to figure out how to stop the rabbits from having a snack on things. The last few years mom and dad always had fresh veggies magically show up at the door and they always appreciated them.
    Lynda, If you need help with anything please don’t hesitate to ask. Will be there for you.

  6. Lynda, Laura and family – I am so sorry to learn of Dave’s passing. He was one of the hardest working people I have ever met and I always enjoyed visiting with him during his many trips to tend to our grain bins and dryer. After whatever issue was solved, he was never in a hurry to leave so he could be sure all was working well. The last time he was at our home, he came to help me modify the Buxton museum’s covered wagon so it could be used for the Ploughing Match. He was always generous with his time and talents and I value his friendship and will greatly miss him.
