I met Dave Edwards when I was 17 years old . He has started dating my foster sister Gloria.He was a strikingly handsome man and a gentleman to no fault. My condolences and heart felt sympathy go out to Gloria, his children and his family. May God wrap Dave in His arms and welcome him to his Heavenly home. Sue Higgins Koger
