Condolence & Memory Journal

This day I learned that my first cousin David is no longer with us. He remains among my favorite cousins, still vivid in memory, not only because he and I shared a number of interests, especially American military history, but also because we managed to make each other laugh at the absurdities of life. I'll miss him more than I can possibly put into words.

David was kind, tolerant and so smart. I have absolutely no idea how he remained so patient with the crew of kids that worked in transplanting every season but he did. A true gentleman. Very fond memories of the 5 seasons I worked with him at the greenhouse. Marie-Claire (Laliberte) Behar.

To the Wentworth Family,
My family had the good fortune of moving to Rollinsford in July 1964, I started working at Wentworth Greenhouse within a few days, I was 12 years old and I stayed for 7 years,
my formative years - what an amazing life experience that was...
My brother, sister and all of the kids in the neighborhood worked at the Greenhouse.
Wonderful memories of good people and hard work! I tell my kids, with great pride, this is where I got my work ethic, my start in life.
David became my first mentor.

Warm Condolences from the Crowell Family.

Bryan,
My heartfelt condolences to you and your family.

Dave was my first boss when I started working at the greenhouse at 15 years old. He was very energetic and animated and always referred to everyone by the first letter of their last name so I was called "L". It was honest, character building work for a teenager but we always had a radio playing so nowadays when I hear certain songs from that period I think of the couple years I spent working there. Sadly, there aren't many around like him anymore. My condolences to his family.
