  1. Amber, Susan and family,
    My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time. May the Peace of our Lord surround you all.
    God Bless,

  2. I would like to send my condolences to David’s family. Fuzzy and I have worked together for over 20yrs. I always enjoyed our conversations about politics and old westerns. He always made us laugh with his new jokes that he told us, even when they weren’t so new…. I am very fortunate to have known him. I will miss him very much.

  3. Wish to express my sympathy to David’s wife and family. It has been years since I have had contact with David but do remember our years as classmates at St. Paul’s Elementary and Concordia High School and working together at Topsy’s in Concordia during those high school years.
