Sorry to hear of Dave's death. He was truly one of the good guys. I will always remember our times in the Mines together. My wife and i will remember all the great times we had at our camps on the Elk River, all the four wheeler rides we went on, the fish we caught and the story's of the big ones that got away. Denise if you need anything give us a call.
