To Joan and family,

It saddens me to know Davy is no longer with us in this world but I am also uplifted to know he has gone to a better place. I also know that he is now hunting and fishing with his best bud, Tom, who went to heaven 15 years ago. Always remember, he will always be by your side and watch over you.

Big Dave,
This past Friday, the streams and woods, around the area and the Poconos grew quiet. I'm certain, even the wildlife and trout were saddened by your passing...they knew a worthy adversary, when they saw one. To me, it was what you weren't, that made you, who you were. You were not slick, arrogant, or given to bragging about yourself. You were, a hard-working, blue collar, sportsmen, who spoke his mind. And you could bust chops with the best of them. But, I always thought, this was your way of saying, "Hey, you're all-right in my book". Anytime, I was fishing with you, I always knew sooner or later, you were going to bring up the missing fish hook story. And if you didn't, I would've been worried. You fought cancer, the way you lived your life, putting every ounce of energy into the fight. Your body may have failed you, but your spirit was undiminished. You were always a great a father-in-law to me...though I never liked Coors Extra Gold, I always liked drinking a beer with you. May you rest easy, and know we're all going to take good care of Joan.

To the Kline Family,
We are so sorry for the loss of David. We have known David for several years, and came to love the person he was. He was funny, generous and quite a character. We enjoyed our visits at his home with him and his wonderful family. David sure did love going to his favorite place, his cabin. There he enjoyed his favorite hobby which was hunting, along with his son Davey. He was a real outdoorsman. He and Davey also spent a lot of time in their vegetable gardens. They were very generous in sharing the wonderful gifts that their gardens produced.
David was so courageous in his fight against cancer. He fought really hard to stay here, especially for his lovely wife, Joan. He is now in a better place, free from pain. We will miss David, he was one of a kind.

Suzanne and Jim

Dear Dad,
The strength and resilience you showed us these last three years during your battle with cancer was amazing. You never gave up and got back up every time. You were determined to continue doing the things that you enjoyed. I will forever treasure our last day together making that peach jelly and then watching tv together. You were definitely “one of a kind”. I will love and miss you forever until I see you again some day. You are free now soar high dad and don’t cause too much trouble up there! Love, Denise
