I just found out today and I am so sorry and sadden of the news. I have know Dave for many years , He inspired me and was the sole reason why I created my product line . One day he came to me and asked me to make a product for him shortly after he started his own business. Because of him believing in me and my abilities it made me believe in myself to do it . Because of Dave and only Dave is why I started my new venture. I have told the story of how I started hundreds and hundreds times to every walk of life and Dave has been in my story every time I have told it and he will continue to be in it. Dave ::: Rest in Peace my friend, even thou I may have never told you directly but Thank you for changing my life. God Bless…………..
