Dear Family,
So sorry to hear of your loss. I have fond memories of Dave and the years that we worked at CDU. He would always say "who is this white rabbit that sits among us?" Just wanted you to know that my thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Sincerely , Fanny Nicholson-Gosselin

Dave was a good friend and long lost cousin who found me many years ago. He was also a fellow soldier and I offer him this last salute. Godspeed Marine!!! May you rest in peace.
