    I am truly sorry for the loss of Dave. He was a true friend while he was in Winnipeg. I knew him for the time he was at Gardewine. It was a true pleasure knowing Dave. I often wondered when he would return for a visit. He was a very good friend to know. I hope I will meet up with him someday. I really miss talking and having the odd drink with him. He was a very funny guy. He taught me a few things in the short time I knew him. Dave was simply one of a kind, but a friend for life.
