Rick and Sue, I am sorry to read of Dave's passing. Although life after school took us different directions, I have many fond memories of Mr. Anderson as my teacher, principal and Dave as my friend. If anything non-academic I learned, was that we had to have expectations of ourselves and I am grateful for that. I can remember stopping in to Jamieson school and sharing the news that I was a father for the first time and I recall his grin of approval once he heard the full name of my first son. I think it is very unfair to not be able to embrace or share a handshake, but I am glad to have had Dave's influence during school and passing some of those ideals to my boys.
My condolences to your family from mine. Thank you for sharing him.
