Condolence & Memory Journal

Just found out about Dave's passing yesterday. He was my sea daddy when i was a young whippersnapper aboard the Henry. A good shipmate, man, and friend i really valued; he tried to save me from myself. Sad for me, it only took 20 years for his message to sink in. When it did, i tracked him down, called him up, and thanked him. He responded "Geez hunky, it's about time!" Glad i got to sail with him and spend time with him at ships reunions. My condolences, thoughts, and prayers for you all. I've had a few tears. God bless all!!
