Dear Ortons: Very sorry for your loss. Reading the obit sent my mind back to the days in the late 1940s at North Prep School when Dave and I were close friends. Sorry to say, we lost touch after Grade six when we went to different schools. It was a valued friendship that I never forgot. The attached photo is our North Prep class in 1947. Dave is third from the right in the front row and I am beside him - second from the right. Regards Richard
