Hello Yannis.  I am sorry for your loss.  It's been two weeks today.  

I am a friend of Dave's who never met him.  A friend from Cigar Box Nation.  A lot of us there were thinking and praying for Dave - and for you.  It has to be terribly tough to care for your loved one in your own home.  God bless you for doing it.  

I have about half a dozen guitar slides that Dave made and some of his art and I drink tea out of a mug he made.  My wife has a neat bowl he made.  I know you probably have a large collection of Dave's instruments and art.   When you get ready to move some of those things out of the house, let me know - or post some pics on Cigar Box Nation.  I think some of us would love to have something more from Dave and that we would be fair with you.

God bless,

John Bolton
