I am so sorry to hear of Dave's passing. We had 22 great years together with wonderful memories of all of you. He overcame so much in his life, I know this is so very hard for all of you, will keep you all in my prayers, and I know Dave is up there cheering on our Cowboys as we speak!

I am so saddened to hear of Dave's passing. We spent many hours talking and laughing. I particularly enjoyed our ski retreats. I loved it when he and Tish and Harley James came for a visit at my place for a few days. The world is a poorer place without Dave.

Sending my condolences to Dave's family. I've known Dave since 1995 when we met through mutual friends. From the first I was impressed with his sense of humor & a sort of handyman talent. He put up more holiday decorations, including roof top displays than any one I knew. Admired his 'all in' dedication to the Dallas Cowboys. Although it's been several years since I last saw Dave, I know I call have called him & we'd have picked up right where we left off as that's the sort of dedicated friend he was. Rest in peace my friend.

Dave and I were family for many years, and I have missed his open and welcoming nature, his ability to talk to anyone-anytime, his love of tinkering with things, and of course, his devotion to the Cowboys. I am so sorry for your loss.
