Cathy and Dolan, for all the years we lived in Belle Point as neighbors I loved seeing your dad. I will always remember him smiling and chuckling after he'd try to tell us we weren't behaving. Especially when Eric and Dolan were being too loud!! So many happy years there living by you and your parents. My heart goes out to you both with many warm hugs that I wish I was there to give you. Cherish those good memories, tell the stories and always smile when you think of him. Love you both.


Sending my love, sympathy, and prayers to Cathy, Dolan, and Peggy in the loss of David. He was always such a nice person, and I know he is resting in the arms of Jesus. God Bless You all with comfort and peace.✝️
