  1. Sallye, I am so sorry to learn of Dave’s death. I know that you and your fine family are grieving and heartbroken at this time. Time is a great healer. There will be better days ahead. God bless you and I will keep you, Pam, and De’Ann in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Bill Roseberry

  2. Dear Sallye, We are so sad to hear of Dave?s passing. Bob asked me Cindy to write this and try to express how special Dave and you have been to us. Working at Quick Serve was one of the best things that ever happened to Bob. Without the opportunities he received and the things he learned working with Dave and you, his career would have been much less rewarding. More importantly, he would have been a different person. Bob?s father died when he was young. Dave?s example and influence was crucial in helping him decide what kind of man he would become. He admired Dave so much and wanted to be like him. Dave was kind, intelligent, and full of grace. I see those qualities in Bob and am thankful for Dave?s influence. Who Dave was had a lot to do with who you are. Thank you. If there is any way we can help you, please feel free to call on us. You are and will be in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Bob and Cindy

  3. Thoughts and prayers are with your family through this time. The Wilson Family

  4. We are praying for your family. May God comfort and sustain you with His love.

  5. Salley, so sorry to hear about Dave. I sent the info to Jim Sherrill to send a notice out on our class of 53 list serve. Peggy Leeds lost husband Bobby Barker this summer, believe they were college friends. Hope your grief will soon lessen. My condolences to you and your family. Pat
