  • Barbara Maxwell-Kelley I was so sorry to hear of Dave's illness and passing. What a guy! He will truly be missed not only for what he did but for his kindness to other people. Thank you Dave.
  • Jane Mayer Dave Adam, had a heart of GOLD. He would always be out helping those in any kind of need. Not in a showy way but in a very happy humble way. For example, Dave would come and pick me up for daily Mass each morning after I had broken my left patella. He knew I couldn't drive and extended to me his help. I was also on the receiving end of a loaf of his delicious zucchini bread. Keep watch over us Dave, keep watch and thank you dear Friend.
