We have known Dave and Barb for 56 years and consider them our friends. Dave played softball on the church team at Grandville Baptist. We enjoyed visits with both Dave and Barb at their home and their second home. Also eating at the Grant Depot restaurant.
We will miss Dave and his friendship. We are praying for Barb and the family.
