To Elaine and family - Our sincere condolences on David's passing. We fondly remember time spent square dancing together, David's always encouraging smile, and his faithful, thoughtful and very talented work as Meri-Squares' club photographer. May memories of happy times together and the support of family and friends help you through these difficult times. Harold Hedley and Wendy McCracken
