"RIP Dave. I appreciate the time you spent at Caribou. You brightened our day when you came in, told stories and jokes, brought cookies, even offered your shoulder when I lost my mom last year. You were one of a kind and Caribou will never be the same. Thank you for being a friend. Godspeed, Casey Rhode "
