RIP in peace Big David. I will always remember you bringing the Mount Cook bus down Mill St when i was a youngster and BJ (Jenny) and your 21st at the Moutere Pub when you kept feeding me chips and raspberry and coke even when Mum and Dad told you not too. We always gave each other a wave on the road when we saw each other. Enjoy a coldie up there bro. Cheers Deepest sympathies to Cheryl and family and to my extended family BJ (Jenny), Batty, Tara, Boof and Grub (Colin), Sandy and family. My thoughts are with you all over there.
