Oh my gosh! I am not with it! I missed this by a day!

Our thoughts are with Dave and his family.

Oh, I am so sorry to hear this. A really valued and cherished member of our family gone. I'm so glad that our DC "angels" were able to let him know how much everyone here cared for him. I think he had a difficult road ahead of him, as others have mentioned, he was very very ill. I'm can't help but be glad he won't have to endure it, but he has left a big Dave-shaped hole here that won't be filled.

I am so sorry to hear this. I was afraid that was going to be the news when we hadn't heard anything from him for the past couple of days.

I am so sad. He was such a lovely man and a good friend to us here.

I am glad we were able to "be there" for him, and I think he was too.

Rest in peace, Dave. No more pain.

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.
Thanks, Terry. "Shell shocked" is a good description. I have an empty hole in my stomach.

This isn't a Jewish funeral home, but maybe there aren't any in his town.

That is sad news indeed FM. Its of some comfort to know that he passed peacefully. Thoughts and prayers going out to his family and friends.

I wish I'd gotten to know him better. May he rest in peace.

Dave was always so positive and willing to stand up for what he felt was right! I hope he is at peace now!

To the family - Dave fought the good fight and can one ask for more. He's resting with Abram now, in God's heart.

I wonder if we have an email address to send this thread's responses and the other 2 threads about Dave to. For/to his niece, or through the funeral home.
It would be nice to let his family know how much he was cared about.

I was wondering about that, too, quicksilver. I thought I'd call his step-son in a couple of days and ask if he would like to have the links sent to him. I know Dave's sister doesn't have a computer and isn't computer literate.

I cannot add much more to all the sentiments that have been previously said, but I do know is that he will be greatly missed!!

I still mourn his loss. I feel like I have gone from the frying pan into the fire. He was here and now he is not. My mom is sick and I do not know what the future holds for her. My mom has always said, "When we are gone, we are gone forever." It is why it is so important to me to keep the memory of my loved ones alive and to remind people to do the same. We have Dave's posts here unless the board crashes. It is a small piece of the man that I will cherish. I never got to send him the challah recipe and how to braid it in a special way that he had wanted from me. I never got to bake for him the poppyseed cream cheese pastry. There was so much promise and it is all dashed. May Dave rest in peace. I am thankful that he will no longer experience pain and I am grateful for the time that I knew him. We had many special conversations and I felt like I had known him forever. We just clicked like I did when I met Andy--another foodie, former caterer. I hope they find each other in heaven. They have a lot in common.

sorry to disagree with your Mom, Susan, but I have found that is just not the case. Those I've loved the most who have gone to the other side are often with me, not only in my thoughts, but in some of the most unexpected ways. You just cannot touch them.

The last time I was with my Dad was three weeks before he passed. One day as I was walking into the living room to bring him a snack, I heard him talking to someone. He was not on the phone, so I asked him if there was someone in the room. He said yes, Nate and Lill (his brother and sister who had each passed many years before), can't you see them? They are right over there.

I had heard from close friends, and read of folks speaking of seeing departed loved ones shortly before their death, so I gently left the room and let him continue. I felt pretty certain that I was seeing him that weekend for the last time.

My point is, if Nate and Lill were gone forever, how could they have come to escort Daddy home?

I'm so sorry about the passing of Dave. It is amazing how we feel like we know these people who have barely touched our lives, but we feel so sad when we realize they aren't here for us anymore except for what they've left behind. I wish I had kept the messages back and forth to Dave. I found one from Barbara that I hadn't remembered and felt so much better reading it.

June it is ok to disagree with my mom, you are allowed. lol Her mom, my grandma use to "see" deceased family members, too. It is one of those areas where those who have not experienced may find it hard to understand. We may have faith in an afterlife but do not know of its existence until we ourselves are there. I ask my mom if she has dreamt of my father or her parents and she always says that she has not.

I understand my mom's point. She can no longer have that physical relationship with her Beloved family members. She can't go to her parents' house or restaurant. My father is not here to take care of her and protect her in the way he had. She cannot kiss him. This is what she meant. Her life changed drastically with the loss of the man she loved for more than 53 years. Also, years from now when all of the family members who knew my father are gone, who will be there to remember him? Cemetaries are filled with the names of ordinary people who meant a lot to people at one time but whose history is lost. This is what my mom meant.
