    Dave you were like the brother I never had we had lots of laughs and tears together. You were there for me and I for you when you were going thru ruff times with your work and bike building. I will always cherish the great times we had with burger Bob or pizza bob as you liked to call him. Till we meet again on the other side keep the rubber on the road brother, and save a spot in line for a old guy on 3 wheels.
