  3. My heart truly goes out to the Mehlhoff family.
    Dave and I were high school buddies. Friday nights when the teen canteen was open, (which was a dance for teenagers at the Brown Memorial Hall), Dave would get his dad’s 1955 red and black Packard and we would cruise around town. We thought we were hot stuff. Then we would go to the dance, and take our sticks to fight off the girls. I have a lot more memories of Dave. I will never forget him.
