Well, I do remember the first significant interaction between me and him and it was not very good.  We got off on the wrong foot and really didn't like eachother for what seemed like a long time, but years later it was all cool and for a while he would  appoligize perfusly whenever he saw me.

Rip Dave. I didn't know you too well but just from reading what other people wrote it was the same with me. He'd treat you like he'd known you for years and was friendly and you could talk to for awhile about music or whatever.

I remembered just tonight, that within the last few months, I forced Dave to find Jesu.....and he did, and realized that it was good



just like he always did with me for bands that no one on the board would care about like Drag the River

Saying goodbye to a friend proved harder than I imagined it to be. Maybe because he was gone before any of us expected, maybe because he was the most amazing man ever. Unconditionaly he loved and cared for people.

I'm still  missing him somthing fierce, and having to say bye to him today has proven to be tough. How I wish there was just one more time or chance to tell him what an amazing man he was, to hug him one last time, to talk about one last band, or to listen to one last song together. I so with that I could talk to him now! I miss him so much!!!

Forever will Dave be in my thoughts and my memories. I miss you!

The other day I showed my mother Dave's obituary because it says that he grew up in Nipawin, Sk. where my mom grew up too. She told me she kinda knew the family and emailed her brother in PA and this was his reply to the news of Dave's death:

"Donna I grew up with Dave and was a good friend of his in school… Always thought of him as “Stutterin Dave”  He was a meathead but good to his friends and family. Ask Justin if he was in a band please that was what he wanted in life. Wish I would have known, I would have attended the funeral."


I didn't really know Dave that well, but RIP man, you will be missed by everyone.

Yesterday was a hard day indeed... it was like all the effort and energy spent trying to hold it together for the past few days finally took its toll when it came time to put my stickers and words on that coffin.  It was a beautiful service for a beautiful man.  From the short time I knew him, I learned so much.  I will always remember him and miss him.

I never met Dave but when I saw the picture collage of him I immediately recognized him from shows. I do know Danny though, and my sincere condolences go out to him, his family, and all of you who knew Dave.

it's weird how you can know someone so briefly, and they leave such a major impact on your life.  I've only spoken to Dave twice.... and yet yesterday was the hardest thing ever for me.  It was harder to attend the funeral of someone i've only talked to twice, than it was  to deal with the death of a classmate i knew for 6 years.

But i think i know why the situations were so different, it doesn't matter how long you know someone, it matters what that person does to effect you in some way.  What Dave did for me, most people would consider not that big of a deal, but for me, it was huge.  The first time I met Dave, I was at Tim's place playing scrabble with Naiomi, Tim, and Russ.  Dave came home near the end of our game, said hi to everyone, and just kinda excused himself to his room for a few moments.  He came back with a cd in hand, looked at me and said, "You're the chick that likes Lamb Of God right?"  I said yes, and he gives me this Lamb of God autographed cd.  This is huge to me!  i seriously didn't know why someone would give up something which to me is so huge, to me of all people, i mean, he didn't even know me. 

The next time I spoke to Dave, was at Sounds of the Underground last year.  I remember walking around the arena, just waiting for the next band to go on, and i see Dave.  He beckons me to come over to him for a second, so i went over, and he pulls out this Lamb of God guitar pick.... holds it out for me, and tells me that he got it for me.  I swear, i was speechless.  I couldn't believe that he remembered me when he got the pick. 
To me, this just shows what kind of a selfless and caring person he was.  He went out of his way to make other people happy.  And honestly, those two occasions showed me what kind of an amazing guy he was.  I'll never forget what he did for me, and now those two little collectables are suddenly a lot more precious to me. 

R.I.P.  Dave, you were truly a great guy, wish there were a lot more people like you.  I only wish i had the opportunity to get to know you better.  Thank you so much for everything!

Lotsa love,

Chelsey

~HELLSEY~  I can't believe the mess I've made, tore open my soul, bore it all for NOTHING!  How long must I cry these mascara tears?  Solitude streams from my eyes.  Screams of sorrow sing from my lost hopes.  Who have I become?  Lost in a sea of despair.  This world leaves me empty, used, and broken.  I don't need this. I don't need anything.  I've forgotten my past, I refuse to live the present.  And the future is a lost cause.
This is my life, this is my world... this is my misery.

I tried not thinking about the void that was so apparent to me tonight. The feeling of something missing or something just wasn't right. That was Dave not being at this show. I tried not thinking about it but it was always sitting in the back of mind. I kept expecting him to walk through the door with a big smile on his face and wearing one of the numerous shirts that he had, not to mention that killer jacket I was so envious of! I knew tonight wouldn't pass without many thoughts of him, but I'm sure in some way or another he was there! Nothing could keep him away from a good metal show! I know the metal horns were held high many times tonight in honour!!!

Hi there, It has taken me awhile to get to doing this, things have been busy and crazy to say the least. I just want to thank all of the people whom have done such great things for my family in the past weeks. From the time Dave passed away we have felt such an overwhelming amount of support from everyone. The benefit was amazing and all of the raffle tickets and prizes were awsome, I think that Sandra must have wings!!!
Danny was so thrilled to see all of the people that came out, and Dave would have been beaming!!!
Dan has had a hard week, he is in the hospital but seems to be getting better now...he still sleeps alot and is in pain as the drugs start to wear off. He has alot of HOPE still and we are trying to keep his spirits up...One of the hardest parts of all of this has been trying to grieve for Dave and focusing on getting Dan better at the same time.
Life is not supposed to be this hard....so I thought....
I guess I just wanted to say that all of the support you all have given is what keeps us going, and makes things easier.

One of Davids favorite movies was "Pay it forward" which makes me think that this is his way of paying it forward to us...having surrounded himself with great friends we get to remember him trough all of you!!! Thanks

Just thinking about it sends me into throwes of frustration you can't even believe. I can't take people I care about being this vunerable. Fight this Dan, fight it as hard as you fucking can with all of us behind you.

i think thats fuckin cool man..20 buks is 20 buks. but i wonder how much do they have saved up for cancer research and whats actually being done with the donations.. it just seems like there has been no real break throughs in science for a long time in this area.. my mom had serious cancer when i was young and it seems we are still behind on this one. but i heard they did invent a shirt that feels like someones huggin you so its not like they are wasting their time.

We feel the same way about the research, it seems as tho they pay people more $$ just to look into things??? Funny thing is both Dave and Dan had been to the doctors and went undiagnosed for a year each...what does that say???
I just wanted everyone to know that when Dan was taken by the EMS to the hospital the other day his biggest worry was the cost of it, not that he was almost in a coma, but that it was not covered by sask health....So yesterday we paid his bill, $300.00 with the money that was raised....he was so happy about that...so Thanks.
We have spent so much time at the hospital and realize how blessed we have been in terms of freinds and family support, there are people whom have nobody there on a daily basis because the wife, husband, or other support system has to work because they are not. EI doesn't pay a Hell of alot to these folks and with the money for parking, food or to say close if you are from out of town...you could be broke quickly. Not that money is the most important thing but when you are dealing with what some of these people are it is nice to know that everything else is taken care of.
I would LOVE to be able to orgainze a yearly "Band of Brothers Benefit" and give back a bit, Dave would be thrilled to know that there was a legacy to his name...and give some of those people that don't have such wonderful people around them a little LOVE as well!! It is something to think about in the new year and when Dan is feeling better....cuz I NEED him to feel better....besides the Radfords could headline!!!!!!

This is a great idea and it would be nice to see any money raised somehow go to a more local\personal cause like you've mentioned instead of being an anonymous (and possibly useless) contribution to the Cancer Society. I would rather hand 20 bucks to a family at the hospital than pay for an ad campaign or lobbying. Danny, Bower and myself are supposed to jam so I'll offer our band to the benefit too Wink

I agree that I would rather see the money raised go to a local family instead of the "corporate world of medical research".

The yearly Band of Brothers show is a fantastic idea! I don't know what I could do to help, but definitely count me in!!!

Let Danny know that we're all thinking about him, and we, like you want The Radfords to headline!!!
