  2. Our heartfelt sympathies to Ginny and the family. You were the best neighbors ever, and Dave was always up for anything! We enjoyed our trips up north with you, and learned to love the north because of you. It was always fun to travel with Dave and Ginny; Dave was so tall and he kept track of us, and we could always see him. And Ginny’s laugh was always a great reward! They just don’t make people with a sweeter disposition then our friend Dave’s. We already miss him. Love you all’
