Heaven gained his soul...the Church of Christ lost a great preacher! He baptized me 31 yrs ago next month. I sat through so many of his great sermons; he was one of my favorite preachers. I'm so glad that through other circumstances I attended in Greeley the last 4-5 weeks; I got a chance to be present during his last sermon/lesson. I felt he was saying good-bye during the one before last sermon; I mentioned that to him; I also said, I'm glad you're still among us; he said praise God. He was pleading; encouraging us to stay in the faith.
He was a rare combination of self-confidence & humbleness. It's going to be awkward not to hear his voice & laughter; not to see his smile; his warm welcome. I know he's resting in peace in the company of the saints & most of all his Lord & Savior Jesus Christ. We morn not having him with us, but we rejoice because we know where he went. We should all follow in his example. RIP Dave; we hope to join you when our time in this earth ends! The song This World is not My Home always reminded me of Dave; he's home now!
