Tammy, my deepest thoughts and prayers are with you and the kids. You are strong and will make it just fine, but know that he is walking with Jesus now and wouldn't come back to earth even if given the chance. He is looking down upon all of you and will be there in your very soul until you meet in heaven. Love you girl. Lavinia

I hope you and your family are comforted by the memories of David that you hold and the memories other share with you. I know I was blessed to hear Joseph tell of a time David came to his rescue when his lawnmower broke down in the Mueller's yard.

I'm sure you will be hearing countless stories of the wonderful man you married. I am praying these memories bring you comfort and peace during your time of great loss.

LaDonna and Arlond,

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Here is something that has always been helpful to me and perhaps it might comfort you:

“...Death is nothing at all. It does not count. I have only slipped away into the next room. Nothing has happened. Everything remains exactly as it was. I am I, and you are you, and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged. Whatever we were to each other, that we are still. Call me by the old familiar name. Speak of me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference in your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word it always was. Let it be spoken without effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is absolute and unbroken continuity. What is this death but a negligible accident? Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner. All is well.”
