    Ah Susie, just saw your message. I knew he had been in the hospital struggling. This is very sad to hear, Dave and my dad were both in the Ironworkers local and they had a great jovial friendship as Union Brothers. Our family circle is diminished on earth but we will all meet again in the heavenly wagon circle in the afterlife. Our hearts are with you all in this sad hour with prayers of comfort. God Bless always. From cousins Lori, Danny & Ryan from Aunt Alice Understahl Patterson Family.
