    I’m glad I was able to get together with all of you for dinner during the Christmas holidays. Dave had several interests I could talk about….another solar eclipse to look forward to in a few years, contemplating plans to travel to Scotland and maybe the Netherlands. Though I knew he also found interest in US Civil War battlefields, I didn’t know enough to engage with him on that topic. Thank you Dave and family for the treasure of your company….rest in peace.
