    Theresa – you and Dave are long term friends and family with Graydon and I. This has taken the wind out of my sails because of the long history of love between all of us. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers always. Love to you and Torie.

    I did not know David personally, but I wanted to express my deepest sympathy for your family. At times like this, I have personally found Jesus Christ’s words at John 5:28,29 to be truly comforting. There he promised that “the hour is coming when all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out…to a resurrection of life.” I look forward to the time when I can see my loved ones again so much. Again, I’m so sorry for your loss.
