  8. Prayers and thoughts to Dave’s family. So very sorry for your loss. Wonderful man! On many occasion I was fortunate to have his help. I consider him a friend. When I reached out to him a couple of weeks back as always he was right there. He always made himself available. I will most certainly miss him and his easy going and gentle personality. This is a devastating loss and Havasu will certainly feel the impact of his absence.
