|Let the memory of DAVID be with us forever|
"uncle dave would you all watch over my mom. please maureen"
"Happy Birthday David...missing you anew today. Your first birthday in Heaven....I imagine they are sounding the trumpets in your honor. I pray always that you are in grace and ask you to pray for me."
"Today some family members took a final boat ride with dear ole dave to lovers key. The sun was shining the ride was shared with many wonderful memories. His brother read the comments from this page. The tears came but not for too long. Dave preferred laughter so we accomodated. We sent him sailing off into the sunset. He left us with funny stories. Love always Steve and Jo."
"David here's hoping you are with those angles you always said you were going to be with. I'm sure you've convinced them to make you some oatmeal cookies by now. Say hi to Mom, Dad and Jack for all of us. After all the years of torment you went through, you can now finally rest in peace."
"To my Godfather in all sense of the word! You showed me how to ski, ride a go cart and so many other things. You built my first hamster cage with so much love and attention to deal. We called it the condo. so many memories of learn how to shift your truck when I was maybe 7. You have a special place in my heart and you will be missed dearly. love ya uncle dave. I'm glad you are at peace."
"Uncle David I know we didn't get to spend much time together while I was a child, but it was great to get to spend time with you again a couple years ago. I won't ever forget you telling me that I was really pretty and should get married and have kids! Don't worry I did all that! Hold a place for us all up there with Aunt Colleen and Grandma and Grandpa Thornton!"
"I loved and adored my uncle dave. he was my absolute favorite uncle. boating at the lake, him and his crazy hydro planeing. He was always there for my mom and us kids. I'm so impressed by mark, his son. for all you have done for your father. It shows great character.. Uncle Dave you will be missed and always remembered. I love you P.S. could you tell my dad I miss him too. maureen"
"My dear sweet brother David. I remember going on the lake to ski and you getting so frustrated with me cause I was too scared. So you let me drive the boat and I almost ran down a sailboat...oops... You didn't get too mad :). Later when you lived in FLA...my husband and I loved visiting Ft Myers. You always gave us a great time and were so sweet to our son Ian. Love and miss you!"
"Condolences to Mark and Mary and all you have done and have been through with this terrible illness. Mark from the time you were born you have always been the joy and pride in your fathers life. I know he is so proud of who you are and touched by the care from you and Mary during his illness and how you were there for him."
"RIP Uncle Dave, my favorite. Walked me down the aisle in the early 80's, but before that was there for us, a huge support for my Mom, your sister, widowed with 4 kids. With Aunt Colleen & cousin Mark..Oh the memories, Pontoosuc Lake, the boat, swimming & skiing all summer long, so much fun. And his love for the hydroplane boat racing, & boat named after Mark. Love you Uncle Dave!"
"My uncle Dave was a unique man. A bit complicated at times but always spoke from his heart, good or bad and I loved him for it. He worked so hard all his life and you couldn't help but be inspired by his effort. His struggles in the past few years I did not see but can sympathize as my mom is going through it too. He is in a good place now. No more struggles. I love you Uncle Dave!"
"It was a honor and a privledge to know you. I wish we had more time. Home feels empty without you here. I expect to see you and hug you each morning. I know you're finally at peace now. I love you much Dave- and miss you!"
"I am glad we had as much time as we did. It was hard watching you go at the end but I know you are at peace now and in a better place. Thank you for all you taught me and did for me. You were a great dad and I love you and miss you."
