    Dave, thank you for mentoring and paying forward both in this forum and outside of it. The seeds you've planted over the years are a legacy any man would be proud of. Bask in the love of friends and family now, we'll all hate to see you go but if any man deserves his reward it's you. Godspeed Dave.

    I have seen the pain and sadness caused by this horrible disease twice recently, with my sister and a co-worker. My prayers go out to Dave and his family.

    Nothing is incurable thru the Grace and Mercies of your Lord and Saviour Jesus, Christ.
    This can be a time of spiritual healing for Dave and his family.A time to accept, turn to, and live within God's love and tender mercies.
    Dave, may you and your family turn to our Lord and His undying comfort thru this trying time. He will keep and hold each and everyone of you .He has promised to not forsake you if you just ask.

    My heart goes out to Dave and his family, I wish them the best in these difficult times. Dave was a member I truly admired, for both his knowledge, his passion for the sport, and his willingness to help others. Thanks Dave, for all you've done for us on THR.

    Cancer sucks. I'm sorry to hear the news, and if there's anything I can do (Dave or friends) please PM.

    While I've had people in my life who instructed me on various aspects of firearms, among those who advised from afar there have only been a couple who've taught me as much as he has.

    I have been reading Dave's thoughts on this forum and TFL since 01 or so. I feel like I know him even though we have never met. I'm very sorry to hear this. Prayers sent.

    Thanks for everything.

    Dave, Thank you for sharing yourself, your time, and your knowledge with us, the faceless masses of the internet gun world. A part of your legacy in this life will live on here indefinitely.

    My prayers go up for you and your family.

    I, who knew very little about shotguns but had an interest, asked Dave via private message some questions that seem stupid to me now. Dave replied in detail and several times, always treating me with respect. He was always encouraging and patient, not to mention amazingly knowledgeable. I would describe him as the ultimate gentleman. I am praying for him. In recent dark times the song, Blessings, by Laura Story has comforted me. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOOFAaUGfRE
