Thinking of your family during this difficult time. We will miss all the hilarious stories that Dave and his brother Paul would tell (while laughing hysterically) about all the trouble they got into growing up. I especially loved it when Dave would tell the story about why one of his ears are longer. He said it was because he and Paul had to take piano lessons together and he had to sit next to the piano teacher. He said she would pull his ear every time they messed up (which was quite often) as it was clear they had not practiced. Their own mother walked out of the recital while playing a duet because they were not in sync. This did not bother them at all- they thought it was so funny!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
