    Dave was a GREAT individual, one of the finest in my life. I’ve known Dave and Laura since our college days at Fort Hays State. They both accepted me for who I was and never judged me. They were always there for me. Like wise, I could not miss saying goodbye to Dave and be there for Laura, and their families. I was honored to be with the family for Dave’s ceremony and pay my deepest respects. I am extremely grateful for their friendship.

    I would also like to express my heartfilled thanks to the military for a very moving and special ceremony.
