"I am heart broken about Dave, not even sure what too say, So Sorry Wade and for your family, he talked a lot about you and your family and he loved you all unconditionally. To all of his siblings, I am so sorry. He and I might have had several on and off's over the last 7 years, but I loved him a lot. And he knew that as well as he told me the same. Just wasn't meant to be. I am gonna miss him so much. To Kevin my heart really is breaking for you my friend, you and he were so close and shared a love and respect for each other like I have never witnessed. He was a good man, kind man, always caring for others. May God see you all through this difficult time. Love in Christ Joan Stanley"
