To all the Family--
I am so sorry about the loss of our friend, David. He was such a special person to all of us. He will be missed daily.
I do know Heaven's beauty compares to his favorites places in Colorado, or on the lake fishing or just being outside with his friends and family. I know he was greeted by family and all those great Labs of his who had gone before him.

Please know we will always be there for Jenny and all the boys. I am glad he is free from pain, but I know he will be missed always and forever here on Earth.

Much love,
