His pain is over. He would not let go as he loved you all so. He did not want to miss the party. We can all rest knowing, he is now...resting. I do thank God for that.

My Dear Tanya, Mark, Mat and family and Cousin Dian. I just learned today from a letter from Aunt Virginia of David's passing. He did give one hell of a fight, didn't he? He was a favorite cousin. As children, he was so kind to me as a tag-a-long. We have great memories in 09 at Aunt Lillian's funeral as we got to spend very special time together. He did make a difference and gave many of us great memories. He loved you all so.

Tanya and Family---- I am truly sorry to hear of the passing of Dave. He fought a hard and glorious battle in his illness. I wished I had the chance to been able to know him better because I always enjoyed his visits to Kansas. He was a joy to me. Bless you all and may you find comfort in the Lord's love at this time and always. Sincerely, Paula Oast

Tanya and Family. I feel truly fortunate to have know Dave while growing up next door to him. He was always a delight to spend time with and had the most marvelous sense of humor. I am sure the loss is great for everyone who knew him. Time and distance has kept us apart for so many years, but his voice and laughter are always at my beck and call. My sympathies to each of you.
