Thank you all so much for you concern and support. I want you all to
know how much DLBN meant to Dave, both the listeners and djs. It is
amazing to me still how close I feel to so many people I have never met
Dave passed this evening............there are no right words right
now. It has been an incredibly hard week and there are so very many
people that Dave has touched, I can't begin to tell you the amount of
support and love me and my family are receiving. For the specifics, it
was a rare aggressive cancer that spread quicker than the tests came
back and certainly quicker than any doctor there expected.
Dave found a home here at DLBN and I wanted you all to know how much
you meant to him. If the DJ's don't mind, and I can figure out his
backasswards way of programming here, I would like to do a memorial
show for him sometime in the future. Until then I will let you all
toast him in your own ways and remember him for the wonderful man he
was to so many people.
