Donna & Family - I am saddened to learn of Dave (Gumby's) passing. We were pals in high school, and I have fond memories of him. He always made me laugh, we had great times together, and was there when you needed him. I remember he had a green Dodge Dart that we used to cruise around in, all the good times we had at the sand pits, boat launch, & so on. ...he will be missed.

As a Christian, I believe that we will see departed ones again one day, and until that time, I want to pray for you & your family:

Heavenly Father, as we raise David to Your open & loving arms, we pray for the strength to get through the coming weeks & months. Lord, we pray for comfort, to ease the pain, and remind us that we WILL see him again. God, we pray for healing, for friends, for family, for those left behind, that it's not long before the day comes that thinking of David brings a smile to our face again. Lord I ask that you be with David's family, getting them through this difficult time. Amen - John Altieri
