This is a quote from Dave, “Since I met Yancey on the beach, my life has been wonderful, happy, and relaxed; and Yancey (Yum Yum) has been my ‘Baby Doll.’ Jody, Courtney, and David, along with the grandchildren, have been the best family I could ever have. They are special. All my love to Yancey and the children. See you in heaven.”
