    David was a wonderful man who will be greatly missed. He always had a friendly word to say whenver we spoke. I hope that as you go through this difficult time, there will be many memories that also cause you to smile and celebrate his life.

    My sympathies to all of David’s family. As a member of the Odd Fellows, I met and came to admire and respect David’s love of and dedication to both his family and those things he was passionate about. I look forward to meeting him once again, in the world made new, after our Lord’s return. May God richly bless all those he loved, and give him rest until that glorious day.
