    I’m so sorry for your loss. My heart breaks for you. Dave was a great friend to me, never judging and always willing to listen. He was my birthday buddy and I was glad to spend time with him on one of his visits north. My family sends their love and condolences. I’ll miss you, Dave. Love, Lisser

    Ellen, Jim, and Sarah, May memories comfort you and friends and family draw close. I promise to carry David in my heart and memories as always. I am grateful that I shared a year with him as his teacher, that our son's life was touched by his life, and that his heaven is filled with our prayers and his love of music. God bless you and help you through this dark time.

    I am so sorry for your lost. David will always be part of our family, we have so many memories ,he was so very talented. We still have drawings that Dave and his daughter Angelina did together , we have pictures of the many window drawings that Dave did for birthdays and holidays as his daughter Angelina grew, she will always treasure them . Through all his troubles he still took time to be a good father, he video chatted with his daughter and crossed state lines to be a part of important events for his daughter such as birthday holidays and summer vacation. We will all get through this together as a family. David is with our Lord thy God and will watch over us all , my prayer go out to you and your family .Jeff and Maria, Soli, Angelina graskoski
