    We were very sad to hear of the passing of Dave, I remember the many outings we went on when I was young and then the times when he came home in recent years and we went out in a boat. They were good times and we won’t forget! We are all thinking of you all and hope that you will soon be able to laugh at all the happy and funny times you had together. Sending you our love Sue, Dai and the boys and the whole family xxx
