Hello Sherry and Richie, Its been such a long time since I’ve seen you two and it’ll take a bit of head scratching to remember I’m sure. I was the 10 yr old Douglas that lived in the house behind you and George & Marie. I used to come over to help Dave hold heaters while doing fiberglass work on his Corvettes, went home itching and caught all heck for it but I loved it. I raced quarter midgets at the time and sometimes used your front yard lawn to turn around and go back down the long driveway. Even though I tried to be gentle on your lawn still caught heck for that two. Hope you forgave me. I think about Dave often and really miss him, HE WAS MY HERO and still is. I fight back the tears every time. I’ve told his story to many, especially to my son who has done some racing also. About a year ago I spoke to a gentleman who knows you and learned you have been doing well. Just wanted to say Hi and let you know my prayers are still with you all and Dave. Its been about 46 years since then, so I only knew you and Richie but send love to all of your family.

I will never forget.
