    My prayers were daily for David?s recovery. God?s will was otherwise, but he knows best. David was a good man. He leaves many friends & memories behind. It was good getting to spend time with David and to reunite him with high school friends during the Christmas season. Now my prayers are for your family as you go through this difficult time.

    We are so very sorry for your loss. We pray that ?the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus? as you deal with the intense grief that comes with losing your loved one. (Phillipians 4:6, 7) The Bible assures us that God ?is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.? (Psalm 34:18) We look forward with you to the time when we will be able to welcome our loved ones back! (John 5:28, 29)

    Dean, Mary & Nancy, One of the most tragic and traumatic losses life can deal out is the death of a son. The death of a son means the loss of more than just a precious life. It represents the loss of future experiences and future hopes. No parent is prepared for the loss of a child, and when it happens, their world is changed forever. Your family is in my prayers during this most difficult time.

    I am heartbroken. David was so very special to me. We shared a wonderful childhood together. We?d bump into each other along the years & it was always greeted with a big hug and concern for each other?s family. David?s positivity was infectious. I regret that I did not know he was needing support. Please know that I am praying for your strength and comfort. David will always hold a special place in my heart. He made a huge impact on the hearts of many. A quote from Spock, ?I have been and shall always be your friend? our sweet David.

    David was one of our best friends, and I still can?t believe he is gone. He was good natured, kind hearted, and someone we could rely on to take care of our cats. He tried to be cheerful and thoughtful, even though he was uncomfortable the last month before he passed away. He even made us a beautiful Christmas tree out of wood. I will always remember him with love, and affection. ?? Ruth
