Dave, it's been a year already that you left us. A part of my heart died with you that day! I miss you everyday! I miss everything about you. Even your sarcasm! I wish I could have 1 more day with you. Even if it were to see your face, & hear your voice, just 1 more time! A day doesn't go by that I don't think of you in some way, at least once. You have no idea how important you were in my life. You still are, & always will be! I hope you're happy & all your pain is gone! I miss you everyday & will love you forever!

I worked at the Sunvet Mall on Long Island NY where Dave brought the lion show several times.  We got to be friends over his visits there and I have thought of him often over the years.  I recently told my husband I would love to know if he was still doing shows. I just found an old news clipping of the dates the show would be in town so finally had the correct spelling to his last name.  I was so saddened to see this.  His wonderful show brought much excitement to the little shopping mall I worked in as a teen.  Sending love and prayers to his family and wish I had found him again before...
