Dearest Debbie and Diane, You had a damn good Dad. He was always proud of each of you, including those "little" grandkids. If he wasn't talking about sports, he was talking about his family. Dave will miss sitting together for the Steelers game, always a bet riding on it - John owing Dave the final pizza. In time, memories will help get you through. Until then, we are here for anything you need or want. Love, Uncle Dave and Aunt Alice
