Mary Lou and the rest of Dave's family, Dave was a great tenant and I wish to send my and my wife's condolences. We are sorry to have missed the funeral as I have just learned of his passing as I prepare for my fathers arrangements. He is also with Windber hospice who I'm sure made his last moments more peaceful. May God quickly embrace his arrival and give you the peace to know he is finally with our Lord...
