My deepest sympathies to the Hodgson family during this loss. Romans 8:28 And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.

We will miss Dave. He was always kind and very friendly. He could be a fun character as he had a great sense of humor! Alzheimer's disease is horrific and we are making a contribution in Dave's name to the Alzheimer's Foundation for research. We send our deepest sympathy to Patti and Dave's children and other family members as they mourn the loss of Dave.

David is someone I will remember always. I spoke with him often and he helped me on so many things. He was one of the first people I met at MRI and was always so kind and funny. He knew Excel like no one else at the time. He will definitely be remembered with fondness.
