Custom Error Message

Hello,

 

I currently have a VF page and custom controller.  The page has 5 input values which are then written back to the custom Object I have created.  There are also Save and Cancel buttons.  Everything works fine, except in the case where no values are entered and the user clicks the Save button.  I would like to have a custom message appear telling them that they either need to enter a value or click cancel.  Right now I get a System.DmlException error.  This seems like it would be a fairly simple thing to do but I am having a lot of trouble figuring it out.  Any help would be appreciated!  Below is my code:
