Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • Every time David came to town he always wanted to talk horseracing with me. It was great. To state the obvious he was spellbinding in both private conversations and public speaking. Never forget the speech at his 90th birthday. After it ended I asked him why he stopped and he said that he thought people were getting bored. I told him there was nothing further from the truth. We wanted to listen all night. Nothing but good memories. - Posted by: David, Stephanie and Greg (Nephew and family) on: Jul 29, 2012
