It is with great sadness that I send my condolences to you upon hearing of Dave’s passing.  Dave was not just a classmate but a well remembered friend from times long passed.  His courage in all things was always an inspiration to and for me and his friendly smile seemed, often, to bring peace and settlement to otherwise difficult situstions.  Knowing that he is gone leaves an absence not easily filled but his memory will continue to fill one with a bit of his courage.   John (Jack) Musselman…
