Barb and family - you're in my prayers as you move through this difficult chapter in your life. When I recall the mentors in my life I often think of David. I was blessed by knowing Dave through my involvement with YARC. It was thanks to Dave and others that I experienced joy, compassion, acceptance, unconditional love, as well as how to dance! One of the delights was hearing the call of hew/haw hew/haw and lovingly being called donkey whenever we were together. Your brother was the only person that could get away with that because it was special bond between us. John Dumke
