The family has lost a treasure with Uncle Dave's passing. May his smile and his love for family always be remembered. I wish to extend sorrow from my husband, Bob, and myself. May Uncle Dave know the joys of his new home with our heavenly Father, and may the comfort and wisdom of God's Holy Spirit be with you and your family.
With love, Niece Kathy and husband Bob.

You were my third favorite brother, I will miss you so much, people just won't understand, the relationship we had growing up together. I still remember the day you went into the service and I just like yesterday, just going off I still remember when mom made that three layer cake with lemon filling and pink frosting with lots of tooth picks so it would hold up for you, and when you got it, it was all in pieces and you shared it with all the guys in your unit. The music in the back ground is so beautiful just like you and the memories, there are so many, can't count them. God had a reason to take you, you are one of his children. God Bless you up in Heaven. You will always be in my heart. I love you David. Your sister, Ruthann.

Your sister, Ruthann

You are sadly miss by all, I guess I have known you since my birth. I miss you so much David. I wish you were here that I could talk to you and tell you how much I love you. But God said David I need you up in Heaven with us. I know you are watching over Barbara and that you are now at peace. GOD BLESS and I love you and will never forget you. I have you on my computer and I play the song from the funeral home. I hope it stays there for a long time.
Love you, your sister,

For my Dear Brother, David L. Gallagher:
Those we love don't go away, they just walk beside us, every day, unseen, unheard, but always near. Still loved and Missed.

I can no longer see you with my eyes, Touch you with my hands, but I will feel you in my heart FOREVER!

Just wanted to let you know I miss you a lot! I cry a lot. because I can't believe you are gone and today makes 2 months. You are in a Beautiful place, all you have to do is ask Phil, he saw the light years ago and then he told me on March 2, 2004, that God didn't need him just yet,. I miss Phil too. I know you are watching over Barbara. She has her family and friends.

Your sister, Ruthann

Hi, I know that you are up in Heaven guarding your wife Barbara down here on earth. I know that you are at peace and no pain anymore. I wish you were here that I could talk to you and ask you some questions. No one will ever take your place in my life and you will always remain in my heart and prayers. God Bless. Hope that you have seen Phil, tell him I miss his so much and I will see you two some day and then we all will be together with our parents and friends.
