Goodbyes are always harder than hellos and we will miss Dave very much. He taught me to appreciate music, how important it was to memorize scripture, so that it would be there to comfort or guide me when I need it, to be thankful for each day as it is a gift and I will miss his gentle teaching. I know he can hear the music of heaven now and there can be nothing more beautiful. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

Thinking of you all in this difficult time. We were so very sorry to hear of David's illness and subsequent passing. Please know you have been in our thoughts and prayers and will continue to be. In those few opportunities we had to spend time together over the years, we so enjoyed David's light-heartedness and genuine care for others. May God comfort each of you and give you strength. Sincerely.
