Further to my earlier condolence, I regret that I will not be able to visit the funeral home or Service. We spend our winters in Florida and are still here.

I was so sorry to learn of Dave’s passing. My memory takes me back to when we were students at the Model School and then later as fellow Correctional Officers at Her Majesty’s. Penitentiary. Dave’s personality was one that made friends easily and he always had many. Please accept my sincere sympathy. You are in our thoughts and prayers at this sad and difficult time.

Vi and April:
So sorry for your loss and sorry I can’t make it to the service.
I will telephone you later.
