I'm so sorry I didn't look this up earlier. I guess I was sort of shell shocked. Here's a link where you can leave a condolence message:
Hamilton's Funeral Home
Yes, according to his Jewish faith, he will be buried tomorrow. He had arranged this when he found out how ill he was. I believe the burial will be in Mt. Vernon but I'm not sure about the specifics.

I'm so sorry to hear that. We feel very fortunate to have gotten to meet Dave. He even gave us a big jar of his home-made seasoning mix. He was a very nice man and he will be missed.

Oh no, this news makes me very sad. When I first heard about what Dave was diagnosed with, I feared for him. My step-dad died of the very same thing last year. Once your body stops making platelets and white blood cells it is very dangerous and can affect so many other things in your body (immune system for example).

Poor Dave, I am so sad for him. He was a very nice guy.

How very sad!....what we do here in Toronto is, send a donation to a favourite charity in memory. I'm sure if one just sends a card it will be equally appreciated.
May he rest in peace.

Who do we send condolences to?
I'm not sure about the jewish faith, except sitting shiva.
Oh, FM, I'm so sorry.
Susan's gonna be so upset too.
Yes, I am! I have gotten this far in the thread and I had to respond. I can tell you all that Dave was so touched by all the prayers, love and concern everyone showed him here. He was an old-fashioned man who shared some of my father's traits. He had a very kind heart but he knew what he wanted and liked things his way. I think that is what endeared me to him so quickly. I did my best to distract him and chat about food and life. I shall miss him very much and it is more than I can bear right now.
Thanks for letting us know Terry. I will add him to the list at Temple so that shiva will be said for him. He would have really liked that.
