I have fond memories of the time David and Doris Hattey welcomed me into their home to stay while I was looking for a job. They were hard working folks and generously shared what they had so I could succeed.

During this difficult time, I pray that God's Spirit will bring peace and comfort to the Hattey family.

David was such a nice man. I was blessed to share good times with him and his wife Doris. Church was where we 4 met. My husband Bill and David worked on several projects together - Bill considered him a real friend.
