Allan and I are so very sorry to hear of Uncle Dave's passing. He was a true gentleman and every one who came into contact with him recognised that. I have memories of him from visiting in Canada and from the visits he and Aunt Edna made to us in Northern Ireland. One of the things I most admired was his love for Aunt Edna, the careful way he took care of her, and the way he acted towards her. He will be very missed, and we have all of you in our prayers.
