    Sandy, Joey and David. I am so sorry to hear about undle Dave. Alot of memories of going over to the farm and seeing your mom and dad. I know there were many good times that my mom and dad and your parents spent at the table playing cards. To Helen, we only met once a couple times. I was very glad that you two found each other. I know you were happy together. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Dallas and Gail Wiinikainen.

    Hi Sandy, Joey, and little David, I am so sorry for your loss. Uncle Dave always had a smile and an easy laugh. Remember when we would all gather at Grandma’s house for Christmas Eve? Sandy, you and I would fight over who got to sit on Grandpa’s lap. Aunt Jo, my mom, and Aunt Emily would sit together and talk and laugh like sisters do. Uncle Dave’s laugh was always part of the evening. He made sure every one was having a good time. I loved to sit and talk to your mom and dad, they were both full of fun when I was young. Helen, I know my mom had great respect for you and enjoyed spending time with you. I am so sorry, Uncle Dave will be missed.

Please share your thoughts ...
