As I think about how amazing, kind, and special David was. I easily picture David walking again. I actually easily picture David flyimg

Susie, Mike and Family,
We just learned of Dave's passing. Carol and I pray for you all during your time of loss. I vividly remember Dave looking larger than life when I met him in his Navy uniform in Davenport so many years ago. Dave is no longer bound by the confines of his physical body. God is always good. Psalm 116:15 says Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His saints.
Much Love, Phillip and Carol Thompson
