My dear friend Dave, you will be missed. We grew up together in the same neighborhood, shared many memories, and then went our separate ways, only to meet up at the occasional HS reunion. You are now in a much better place as I know life was not always kind to you. I miss you my friend. Thank you for all of the memories and true friendship. Gary
You will be missed.....We had some good times. I remember when you and Jimmy came to Staten Island, we hung out at the beach by a fire.....Good ole time! Rest in Peace! Love Phyllis & Family
