    I met Dave in January while caring for an elderly lady at ft. Myers beach. From the day we met, we spent 9 days together everyday and did we ever enjoy one another’s company. Swimming, walking the beach, and hangin out at the mermaid..
    I had to come back to Ohio, and was planning on returning for a visit with Dave in May..
    rip Dave.

It was always nice to sit at the dock and chat with Dave, he definitely had some funny stories to tell and he loved his beach life. He was definitely well-liked at the beach by everyone and he will be missed by all. RIP Mr. Dave!!

    Thank you everyone for all your kind comments – here, through Facebook and through email. It has been wonderful to see the various sides of my brother. I have particularly enjoyed the insights on his life in Florida. All of the comments put a smile in my heart. Hard to believe he’s been gone a whole week already. My mother always said “he’s your little brother, you have to take care of him”. I guess that’s her job again in heaven as he has joined both our parents there.
