Dear Monica and family,

Our thoughts and prayers are with you. What can we say, but that all of us are heartbroken over the loss of Dave. He was more than a friend he was considered family...a brother and an uncle. We will forever cherish the memories of his laugh, smile, and wisdom...LOL! Like the time we were picking up the boys at Mount Princeton and he backed the Blazer into a skid steer...oops! When we arrived back home and he assessed the damage he said, "That will buff out no problem!" Another fine moment was when he and the boys were working outside in the yard and lost track of Booty. They found her alright and had to get her out of jail at the local animal shelter...LOL! A song that will always remind us of Dave is Peter Frampton's 'Do you feel like I do' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrFKG-N7Log. Gone too soon from this world and will never be forgotten for as long as we shall live, until we see him again one day...no doubt. Thank you for being a big part of our lives. May you rest in eternity brother Dave. We love and miss you. Our sincere condolences.

May God's love surround you during this time of loss,

Larry, Ruthie, Brandon and Larrie Glavinich
