Though I mourn his passing, at the same time I Thank God that a man like Dave lived and touched mine and so many lives. You were not setting in the shadows either as we had a blast in Children's Church. You taught me how to make the duck puppet and I still know how. I have spent my life searching for another Church like Evangel Temple was and I don't know if it even exists anymore. Most people go through life going through the motions and pretending. His spirit had a purpose and he filled it. He is a perfect example of Matthew 25:23 "His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord." I Thank God that Dave and all of the Scotts have been in my life. Till we join you in heaven, goodbye Commander Scott.

Pat, I am so sorry for the loss of Dave. I would have liked to say goodbye, but my mobility is an issue. I just wanted to tell you something I wish I had the opportunity to tell him. But you already know this. When your family started going to Evangel Temple, Joe Dixon was already doing a great job with the Royal Rangers. Dave jumped in with both feet & took us to another level. His knowledge, experience and patience were magnificent. Dave and Joe were a phenomenal team. He had a real desire to teach and make sure we understood, no matter how many times it would take him. You can bet that on every single outing he would waste no time and use it talking about things we were going to do, teaching every minute. He taught me a lot about problem solving and how to make things with available items. He would set goals for us of what certifications we would receive and saw it through. I used those lessons in the Army and they were a great advantage to me several times. Knots, wilderness survival, building a fire, the list goes on. Most importantly, He explained lessons in the Bible. The need for a true relationship with God. The reasons for the stories and what they represented. Your family brought loyal friends that I still consider my family. We had a great time and I still think of those often. I will never forget the way he would say "Patricia", and the others. I just hate that life goes on and we get out of touch.
