I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Dave. He was always a special cousin to me. Everytime you seen him he always had that beautiful smile on his face and always open arms to give me a hug and say “How’s it going Sissy?” Dave was always a special brother/nephew/son to Mom & Dad (Morg & Louise Gibson Smith) I was always told some wonderful stories of how he stayed at our house with the older kids. He was truly one of Mom & Dad’s kids too! They loved him so much!! I am truly saddened to hear of this loss – he was a great man!!!! With Love, Becky Smith Patrick, Hindman, KY
