Dear Ginny and Family, 
I am so sorry for your loss. There is now an enormous hole in the world. I don’t think I ever encoutered Dave when he wasn’t smiling, when he didn’t have a positive word to share. I have so many Christmas night memories of you and Dave at Uncle Frank’s Chocolate Factory singing around the piano. Dave, thank you for all of those smiles. Love to all of you. ~~~ Mary Ruof

Ginny,
I am so sorry to hear of Dave’s passing. I wanted to come to the funeral but unfortunatly I was not able to attend. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers as you go through this difficult time in your life. Once I read a saying “Don’t shed a tear for me for I am not gone I am just away until we are togeather again” I know that Dave will be waiting for that day to come to be with you again. God Bless you and your family!

I worked with Dave for many years. A great guy with a wonderful dry wit that always made me smile and laugh out loud. One of the best stories was Dave and I were replacing a wire across a busy road. Dave was on the pole and I was stopping traffic. After we got the wire replaced Dave and I were standing along the road and a car slammed on the breaks and pulled off the road. The car had 3 kids and grandma in the back seat and a wife in the front seat, A short man jumped out and demanded to know where are these A-mish people are at. Without missing a beat Dave said, ‘you just missed them, they went to New York to watch the people work’. I still laugh to this day about this. Dave will be missed.

Dear Ginny and Family,
My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. I have many wonderful memories of singing with Dave (and you too, Ginny), at St. Anne’s. He always made me smile and laugh, especially when he called me Jilly. I can just hear his laughter. Dave gave so generously of his time and talents. He will be greatly missed. I can picture Dave in Heaven strumming and singing. God Bless you and your family.  Jill Ferretti

Dave was a wonderful man and I’m so happy that you both were a part of my life.  His laugh will always stay with me.  Heaven got another angel for their choir!  Rest in peace dear Dave.
