    Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the passing of Arnie. He was a steady presence in my life during the past few years, both at the card table and at Dave’s, where my sister and I enjoyed his company over an occasional Sunday lunch. He will be forever a fond memory in my heart.

    I retired from Dave’s Bar & Grill 2 years ago and one of my greatest pleasures was waiting on Mr & Mrs Pepper. After she passed, I was so afraid we wouldn’t see him anymore but he came in and I always told the new staff to take good care of him……..the reason was simple he was a delightful man and always good to the help. Thank you, handsome, for being in our lives !!

      Every afternoon and sometimes night, I looked forward to watching Mr. Pepper’s car pull into Daves Bar and Grille. He was the sweetest, delightful man I ever met. Thank you for making my day, everyday and I hope you’re enjoying lots of pudding!
