Rest in Peace Uncle Dave...
I've got a lot of fond memories of watching you race at Silver Spring Speedway and working on the race car in the garage behind Dud's house. It was so loud in there, but I was fascinated by what was happening. Thank you for all the great memories.
Aunt Carol, Dawn and Davie - I wish I could take away some of the pain you are feeling, keep the good memories alive.... Love you all.
