Here is a message from Ashley:
What do I say? There are so many emotions running through me. I am so sad, angry, lost, scared and so much more. But there is one emotion that I never thought I would feel. I feel so lucky. I got to marry the man of my dreams. I got to make the best memories of my life with my best friend. And I have a support system that has kept me going through all of this.
Dave's struggle and pain is over. He spent his last days visiting with family and friends, taking a trip down memory lane, and listening to Green Day. I would like to say a special thank you to the wonderful staff at the U of M. Every single person felt like family. They did everything they possibly could to support and care for Dave. Thank you just doesn't seem like enough.
I love you more than there are stars in the sky, to the moon and back, and with all of my butt. Til we meet again
Dave passed away peacefully in his sleep on Monday, March 30, 2020, with Ashley by his side, and virtually surrounded by his loving family. In the current state of the world, we are unsure what kind of memorial we can have, but will keep everyone updated. Thank you for all of your love and support.
