I remember going with the family to D lake. Everyone was so happy because we were going out on the lake in Dallas's boat. Dallas steered the boat around in the lake, and we all took turns being towed behind it on floating devices. He was so generous with his time and boat, and seemed to be enjoying everyone's laughter as much as anyone.
