  1. Dave & Dan, You are in our prayers during this difficult time. We will always remember how happy Dan & Addie were together. We used to run into them all the time when we went out to breakfast, lunch or dinner. We saw them many times at Unky Roys. They will be missed but not forgotten. We love you Dave! mike & karen
