  1. Jim and Candy,
    I remember when your Mom (Maurine) and Dad (Uncle Corky) brought you to Greeley in 1955 for a visit. It was a time that stands out for me. Also Jim you came to Ohio (my daughter Alicia was living there) to visit with your Dad and mine (Roy/Jr.)in 1999 That was especially thoughtful. I appreciate those times.You have my prayers in the loss of your Dad.

  2. Uncle Dave, I enjoyed our times together, especially our visit when I was in Pueblo on business. It meant a lot that you and Aunt Madeline came to Salt Lake for my wedding. All my best to your family and friends.

  3. Was glad to have known ‘Uncle Dave’ as we called him after he married my great Aunt Madeline. We enjoyed a nice day riding and talking around Pueblo a few years back when I learned much about him. His trips back to SC with Madeline were always special occasions, and his care and attention as a husband always appreciated. Sincere condolences to his family and friends from ‘family’ back in South Carolina.

  4. Madeline,

    Please accept our condolences on the loss of Dave. It was so wonderful that you had those years of happiness together. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you. Love you lots! Rose and Don
