  1. Lorna and Ron Baker says:

    Our sympathy to all the family. Jean, thank you for sharing Dave with all of us at Comfort Covers. Dave could not ever be replaced and we will be forever grateful to him for his contributions. His “shaggie” quilts were most loved and appreciated. We loved to tease him and he delighted in sparing with us. We will miss him so much. Comfort Covers won’t be the same without him.

  2. Joey Klumpp says:

    Dave will be missed by our exercise group. The ten years have gone by so fast. I will always remember how Dave would bring in a box of chocolate every Valentine day. He was always proud of his quilts. They were so pretty. RIP good friend. Thanks for all your tips on golfing.

  3. Ruth Barrows says:

    I was sorry to hear about Dave.My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family Jeanne.

  4. Sharrin Schultz says:

    I will remember Dave for his kind heart. He liked to bring candy to our exercise class on special occasions, and lugged those big fans back and forth when it was so hot in the gym. He was always thinking of others and what he could do to make it a little easier on us. He never minded being the only man in our group, and I think he might have even liked getting to be the “eye candy.” Dance in heaven, Dave. You are missed.

  5. Martha Lohrstorfer says:

    My fondest memory was going with you to shop for your wedding dress. You were so in love and eager to begin your life journey with Dave. That love is eternal and he will always be just a whisper away. Blessings on you Jeanne!
