  6. I am very sorry for your loss. Although I haven\’t seen Dave since high school, he was a great friend. A very kind and generous person.

  10. I went to school with Dave since Jr. High at Giannotti. He always looked out for me and no one would dare mess with him. He was truly the one person I wanted to see at our High School reunion last year and was disappointed when he wasn\’t there. I asked a few people if they knew why but they didn\’t. When I opened the newspaper today and saw his picture I was filled with disbelief. I learned a good lesson today. Don\’t hesitate to act upon your instincts because life is too short. I\’ve been wanting to get in touch with him for a long time but just wasn\’t sure if it would be appropriate. Now it\’s too late. My deepest sympathy and condolences are with you all at this time and I will pray for Dave to join his special place in heaven forever. Please respond as to what happened to him. I would very much appreciate it. God Bless your family, Robyn Bobo DiNatale
