I have fond memories of David, son of my cousin, Allan. I believe that he passed away on his Daddy's birthday. As a toddler, David was an amusing little guy. He called his Grandpa George Spangenberg, "Gorch." You have my sympathy Joanie and Pam. I wish that I had known him as an adult.
Love, O'Linda
