Oh, Jeannie, Bill and I are so sorry for your loss, and for our loss, too. We loved Dave dearly. He was such a godly man and so dear to our hearts . We love you and pray for both of you. He will be greatly missed.

Please let us know if you are ever coming to NC again. We’d love to see you.

All our heart-felt blessings to you.

Bill and Z

Friend! That’s the predominant thought that comes to mind when I think of Dave. He befriended me as did you when my family moved to Kalamazoo & chose Peace Lutheran as our congregation, and then again as my own dear late husband joined our congregation. Always smiling, with a kind word for all he met. You chose a good one too. Now, I know he & Rick are having a grand time sharing stories and praising our Father in heaven. Soon we will be reunited with them and what a reunion that will be! Take heart & comfort Jeannie knowing that as we wait for that day they loved us unconditionally and we will be together again one day. (((Hugs)))❤️
