"I first met Texas Dave years ago playing texas holdem. He was the loudest guy in the room and he had no filters. At first I thought WOW who the heck is this loud mouth. Dave said what was on his mind no matter what or where. I liked and respected Dave as he was. A really good card player and a better man. Dave UNFILTERED I will really miss you man. Harry "
