To the Coombes Family, Dave was such a great supporter of Nova Scotia Agriculture. I have fond memories as we organized various events at the Atlantic Winter Fair. He truly knew how to inspire many of us as we prepared our educational displays for the public ' s enjoyment. Dave's contribution to agricultural awareness went above and beyond. His legacy will live on in this area.

To Lisa and Jen, and to the whole Coombes family, I'm so sorry for your loss. I had planned to come to the funeral but the roads simply aren't safe for highway travel. Dave was such a significant contributor to the exhibition movement in Nova Scotia; many will pick up the torch because of his efforts. I also remember how proud he was of his family - when we were all riding together as teens, your dad delighted in your accomplishments in the show ring. Condolences and prayers to you all.
