Outstanding tribute Jim. I am sure Dave is up there looking down on us smiling.

Thanks to all for your comments and for honoring our friend. To my friend RTZ I decided social media was taking up too much of my time so I cut back on some places where I used to be a regular poster. After losing several friends this past year and a half I think I need to stay in touch better with friends I've made here on CBN. Might not post as much as before but I'm gonna try to keep up with posts from friends a little better.

Good one Jim. Got in church this morning, sat down, and thought of Dave, and said a prayer for him, the family and friends. I didn't have the closeness, that some of you had, but had a lot of respect for all of his talents that he shared.

Lovely tribute Jim. Dave was inspirational to me and shined with his artistic light. Prayers that he is surrounded by love and joy in Heaven and reunited with his daughter Ivy.
