So sorry to hear of Dave's passing. I worked with him for almost 19 years at Appleton and he was a great guy. He always had a warm smile and a cheerful hello for everyone. My prayers go out to his family during this sad time, may God grant you comfort and peace.

Dear Deb, Tandy and Clint
Doug and I are saddened by the news of Dave's death. He was a great guy, husband, father and friend. We enjoyed the time we spend with you and always looked forward to seeing you. I'll never be able to thank you for sharing your love of Nashville with us as it's become one of our favorite places to visit. Please know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers.

Deb and family. We are so sorry to hear of Dave's passing. He was such a sweet and kind man. We pray the Lord be with you all. You're in our thoughts and prayers.

Aunt Deb, Tandy, & Clint,
I hate being far away from family at this time and can't wait to be with all of you soon. This tragedy is not fair and deeply saddens me, but I know that Heaven gained a true cowboy this week. I picture Uncle Dave in his cowboy boots again, finally meeting up with the old horse he used to ride, finally young and free of pain again. It's difficult for us to accept down here, but remember that, for a cowboy, the last ride is never the last ride and the end, is never the end. I love you'ins.


Dear Debbie---We are so sorry to learn of Dave's passing. We are praying for peace and strength for You and your family during this very difficult time.
