In the late 70s and early 80s we were all young Legal Services attorneys in Yakima; Alice was a paralegal; and we all went to the Sernas many times for social events; Dave was always funny and they treated us like family.

David was my boss at Pacific Fruit for two summers when I sorted cherries there. I remember him as a fair but strict foreman. I later became friends with Alice and David when I worked at Moxee Elementary School. He was always full of life and loved his family. May he rest in peace.
