Angeline–sorry for your loss. Let me know if you want me to pick you up to do nothing meaningful for an hour, I have found doing that a comfort in the many losses I have experienced in recent years as focusing on what one should feel can be so taxing during stages of grief. Love to you and family, Bridget

Once upon a time… In the Land of Oh Poppie Doll… I will never forget you and all of your stories. Until we meet again Uncle Crockett :hearts:

Matt Gelhar

I’m really glad we got to make some good memories with you and the kids these past few summers. We always had lots of fun hanging out, loved listening to your riveting stories, so many good times will never be forgotten…We love you very much and you will be missed dearly.

The man that taught us about “show wood”, driving slow past the dump so not to miss any junk lawnmowers and to live well and laugh often. All the memories of collecting “treasures”, hunting, fishing, relaxing at the cabin and who could forget all the debates and philosophics. Things will never be quite the same without you old boy. We’re better people for having had you in our lives and you will be sorely missed and as you often told us, “boy I’m gonna miss this.”

A true American patriot, veteran and a mechanical mentor to the many lives you touched. We shall never forget Duty, honor, country.

Godspeed Crockett, we’ve got the line from here, stand easy soldier.

– Your friends in Riverview

God bless Lisa, Jake and entire family. Rest in peace, Dave. May they have an eternal supply of cold Miller Lite for you up in heaven. Cheers! The Hansen family
