I hope all of you are well . I had the privilege to visit David on several occasions and enjoyed each one. Romans 8-31.

So sorry about Dave's passing. Dave was a great friend while he was living here in Arlington. I enjoyed doing the bookkeeping for his shop. i know Dave was really proud of his children and grandchildren. He will be greatly missed.

For many, many years the family of Mary Lucy, David and Susan was closely intertwined with me and my family. There is a memory bank brimming over with loads of great memories--most of a lifetime's worth. I think those of us who grew up at that time and place are convinced that the summer's were a little longer (this at least is definitely true with regard to school vacations); and the days were full of sweet, country simplicity. It is very nostalgic and sad that that era is passing along with David and the rest of us who will follow.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

So sorry to learn of Dave's passing. He was such a kind and wonderful friend who dearly loved his children and grandchildren. My prayers go out to Debbi and Bryan, Julie and Robbie, Jeff and Lori, Jaela and their children. Count the garden by the flowers, never by the leaves that fall. Count your life with smiles and not the tears that roll.

So shocked and saddened to read this on my emails a minute ago. I would have been there if I had known. I always looked up to Susan's handsome big brother. A part of my childhood is gone. Love to all, Brenda
