Dear Gehrke family. I am so heartbroken for all of you over the loss of David. He was such a character and wonderful person. Growing up with him he had lots of stories and would always tease me whenever he saw me. Unfortunately it has been a long time since I've seen him but still can hear him say REDDDD! My hope for all of you is that the sadness you are feeling will be made easier by all of the wonderful memories. I love the picture, it captures the twinkle in his eyes letting you know that something funny was about to be said. My love to all of you. Colleen (Red) Slattery
