    Dear Alice
    I have just come across David’s obituary. I am so shocked. I had been trying to find him since 2007. It was a long time when we dated, but he was such a great guy. I don’t know why we drifted apart. I am so sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you.

    Dear Alice,
    Due to the devastating tornado, I was reading thru the obits and saw your brothers name. We are sorry to hear of your loss. I thought of you parents as we drove around their old neighborhood.
    God bless you all. Would love to hear from you when things settle for you.

    Sincerely, Anita and Bob

    I remember David Baine from McAuley High School in the early 60’s and he was an example to us all. God rest his soul.
