    Dave is my best friend and the love of my life. I am so grateful I was able to share 2 years with him and give him all the love and happiness he deserved. He couldn't wait to come home, get married and start a family. I have countless emails from him where he gushed about being a husband and father when he came home. Our dream of becoming and having a family is forever gone, but I have the memories and letters from him that I will always treasure and cherish. Dave was the most selfless and humble person I have ever met. He was so kind, gentle, very loving, passionate, driven, accomplished, funny, goofy and handsome!!! He will always hold the most special place in my heart for all my days. I miss him, cry for him and think of him e-v-e-r-y   s-i-n-g-l-e   d-a-y. The day he died, half of my heart died with him.

    Nookie, " I DO" love you for all the days of my life and I know you know that.

    May you RIP my beloved.


    All my love forever and always,
