    I’m so sorry for the loss of Dave. I worked with him at Gateway and he always made me laugh. He would walk past my office door and say HEY pretty loud and scare me out of my wits! He always talked about his dogs and we shared our pet pictures. Such a wonderful man. I will miss him. RIP Dave and peaceful blessings to your family. Godspeed
