    Stacey, Jim and families, we are sad to hear about Dave’s passing. It’s difficult losing a loved one, especially during the holidays.   We’ll always remember what a nice guy he was and a great saxophone player.   Sorry we won’t be able to attend his service. We will still be in Phoenix.  Hugs to all.  Love, Randy and Roxi Herman and family.
