Dave Smith passed away on February 25th. He and his business partner, Deane Richardson, have been largely influential in our lives and our decision to open our business. We were lucky enough to call Dave our friend. Our love and thoughts are with his family and his wife, Elaine, and their close friends Deane and Sandra Richardson. We are better for having known him. From his published obituary:
He was the one to guide, cheer on, just listen, and always push folks beyond their expectations. A firm believer in finding and following one's passions, he challenged all to "Look for your place in the world. Not everybody finds it, but it's out there. Go find it!" Forever Humble. Forever Passionate. Forever Generous. Forever Encouraging. Forever Inspiring. Forever Smiling. Forever Living in the hearts of those he touched.
