  March 6, 2008 Dear Carol, Brian, April and Karen,

I’m so sorry to hear about Dave. I know he was ill, and am glad
his suffering is over, but he will still be sorely missed. When I
told Daniel that Dave had passed, he recalled the time we were
visiting Uncle Jack and Dave took Dan back to your house to see his
cars. Dan was still small then, so Dave really made an impression
on him. Please accept Ron’s, Dan’s and my deepest condolences. We
will keep you in our prayers.    Patty (Hoberg) Jacobson
