I got to know Dave when I worked with Jeanne at DVR. Jeanne was a wonderful friend, who always had stories about her kids and grandkids whom she adored. I saw Dave last right after Jeanne died. I hoped he would move to Dallas to be closer to his family. My sympathy to the family for losing both of your wonderful parents in such a short time.
