Remembering David for the summer he spent on our farm in Troy Pa. Having had no farm experience he adapted to our farm life and it was a pleasure having him help us.
I had only known Dave briefly. He impressed me with his zest for life and his athleticism. Sending peace and love to his family. May you experience solace from fond memories of him.
Our deepest condolences to the Case and Smoot family. We at Village Green were beyond blessed to know and care for Mr. Case. Thank you so much for trusting us with your amazing, gentle dad. He has left a big void in Village Green but also wonderful memories.
I have such fond memories of cousin Dave from childhood visits and then family reunions in CO. His smile and kindness were always so welcoming. So sorry for your loss. Maybe Dave and my Dad Rex are having a wonderful reunion right now.
To Cindy and Robert,
I had the honor of working with your father for over 10 years at Allied Marketing. He was a tremendous mentor to me and taught me so much in the Direct Marketing world. His spreadsheets were massive and filled with data and we would tape them together and line the hallway each month. He had a great mind, a great spirit, a kind heart and he would brag about you two and your accomplishments. I know his spirit, as well as Barbara’s, are alive in you two and in turn, you can pass along to your children.
