I wasn't at your wedding but everyone that attended talked about Dave pushing around the Carthage Square in a wheel barrel. I thought that was very unique and very romantic. He was such a nice guy and you could see the love in Karen and Dave's eyes. I believe he could fix anything he finally had gotten that maroon van fixed, running and painted. I loved the fact he adopted Emily and loved her as his own, that had to be a special moment for all of the family. He was a special kind of guy and he is in Heaven enjoying his rest he so richly deserved for a hard working man. MATTHEW 11:28-30
Come UNTO me,all he that Labour and are heavy laden and i will give you rest.
...rn of me;for I am MEEK and LOWLY in heart:and he shall find rest UNTO your souls.
For my YOKE is easy,and my BURDEN us light.
Dave is living in his mansions that God has prepared for him and God says that in
John 14:1-3
Let not your heart be troubled,ye believe in God,BELIEVE also in me.
IN MY FATHER'S HOUSE ARE MANY mansions;If it were not so,I would have told you. I GO TO PREPARE A place for you.
AND IF I GO AND PREPARE a place for you, I WILL COME AGAIN, and receive you unto myself;that where I am there he may be also.
Karen I am so sorry for your loss.
Dave rest in peace.

I am so glad that Karen brought Dave into our lives. He was a good husband and father and grandfather. He was such a talented artist and could fix just about anything. Dave will certainly be missed.
