To Melinda & Family…we are so sorry for your loss…words cannot express what you are going through…We never got the chance to be friends with Dave, but by the kind words that people are writing it sounds like he was one heck of a companion, father, brother, uncle and friend…may you take comfort in knowing you have so many family and friends to help carry you through the days ahead…keep his memories close to heart and they will bring you comfort in the days ahead….R.I.P. Dave…FLYING HIGH WITH THE ANGELS!

I am so sorry you lost your wonderful husband and father of your twins. And also for them to grow up without their dad.
I still can’t believe he is not there anymore, when I will return to Liverpool. He was such a positive and reliable person, and a very caring one. A real friend! My dog Bentley LOVED him. He sniffs good people.
Wish you strength in this sad time.
All the very best for you and your family,
