David was crazy about golf. All of us at one time or another had the pleasure of golfing on his team in our weekly golf scrambles. If you were lucky enough to be on his team you usually got your team picture taken because his team came in with low score. We will miss you this year golfing.

Dave
You'd think words would come easy for the Preacher, but they surely are hard today. I'll cherish our friendship we've enjoyed with you and Vicky for what seems forever. Sarah , me and our girls have enjoyed every minute we've had together with you guys.
Our heart aches at the thought of you being gone from our family and the "river family".
I rejoice knowing that this day is not goodbye forever. I miss you but we will be together in Glory.
Until then our lives are fuller because of you, and until that glorious day when we see you again, rest my friend in God's beautiful Heaven.
Your friends,
Doc,Sarah, Allison and Amy
