    Dave was a very dear friend for several years. He never failed to come if QUINCY was sick are if we was having a Birthday Bash. A party was not complete if Dave wasn’t there. I will never forget how thoughtful and kind he was when Quincy was in the hospital. He was always there laughing and keeping us entertained. This is not GoodBye SEABEE. THIS IS UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN. WE KNOW YOU &Quincy are having a long chat
