    From a chance introduction to David and Pat and later to their family we formed a rather special friendship that made me feel one of the family.
    David’s smile was an open door to the warmth of his personality and we shared many interests:-Art, Music, Mountains, Humour and Golf etc..
    We shared many laughs playing golf especially at David’s local 9 hole (5th Dimension) course. Many times my ball struck overhead cables and disappeared out of sight while David’s bounced along the ground to win the hole!
    David was a true gentleman and a pleasure to be with.
