So many happy memories flood my mind about my brother Dave.We played in the creek,caught lightning bugs, and played with his BB gun.Many times I was the victim of that darn gun!! I remember one time he saved me when I stepped on a huge snake and was too frightened to move,so he pushed me off and away to safety.He protected me and loved me always.A piece of my heart went with him but I know he is happy in heaven with Mom,Dad and Dick.Love you dear brother!
