    JoAnne and family,
    I am so sorry for your loss. It’s not easy to lose a mate of 40 years. Try to focus on the pleasant times you had together and as a family – it will help to ease the pain. It’s been 4 years since my husband passed and I still miss him every day, but filling the time gets easier. If there is anything I can help you with, or you just need to talk, don’t hesitate to contact me. God bless you as you make this journey and get through these next few days. Tell the lunch bunch if you need anything!

    So sorry that David left us way too soon. We have so many more reunions to have and now we have another cousin absent from our table. He was a kind and gentle soul and we will miss him greatly. God gives us no answer to this loss but to be strong and believe in his will. My heart goes out to you and your family and the hope of what is to come. Bless you all and know we love you and are here for you. We will remember always….

    JoAnne, Josh, Justin and family,
    We wish to express our deepest sympathy for the loss of Dave. Death is truly our enemy (1Corinthians 15:26) and we will be so happy when Jehovah God rids us of this enemy (Isaiah 25:8). I know Dave believed the words of Jesus at John 5: 28, 29 and he is resting until that time arrives and oh how we look forward to that time in the near future. Josh and Justin please remember Isaiah 66:13a and JoAnne Psalms 34:18 and all of us are remembering Revelation 21:3,4. We will continue to keep you in our prayers.

  20. Vivian (Merrill) and Jeff Clemons July 19, 2013 at 1:03 pm

    Our sincere condolences and prayers go out to you at this very difficult time. May your memories help you during this time and in the future. Prayers and hugs.

  21. Erick & Pam Dircks July 19, 2013 at 3:34 pm

    Sorry to hear about Dave! It is a shame that one has to leave this world before enjoying the golden age of retirement! I am sure he had many plans, God must have other plans for him, and I am sure he will be on a new mission! Our prayers to help your family get through some difficult times! God Bless All of You, and may Dave Rest In Peace!
