Dave Hare

Sharon and I are working our way through a boxed set of all five seasons of Alley McBeal. In Prime Suspect in season three, one of the main characters walks into a room at the end of the episode, sits down and says "I have a brain tumor."

Sometime in the mid-1980's, I was working on the computer in the den at the East View house when the phone rang. Answering the phone and exchanging greetings with Dave Hare, he said "I have a brain tumor." Dave died in early 1992 after a long battle with brain cancer.

After seeing the episode, Dave has been very much on my mind. Wallen and I met Dave while I was working for the California Farm Bureau Federation and Wallen was working for Cal Farm Insurance in 1979. He quickly became part of the our extended group of friends.

Dave is in this picture from Lake Trinity in 1985 between Wallen and I.
