    My good-looking brother with your beautiful smile. We will miss you so much. I am so glad your pain and suffering is over and that you are with our Lord and Savior. I will see you again someday soon. I love you.

    “So many people imagine that death cruelly separates us from our loved ones. When our loved ones die, they do not leave us. They remain. They do not go to some dark and distant place. They simply begin their eternity. We do not see them because we are still in the darkness of the world. But their spiritual eyes, filled with the light of heaven, are always watching us as they wait for the day when we shall share their perfect joy. We are all born for heaven and one by one we end this life of tears to begin our life of love in endless happiness.”

    Jane, I know as Christians, you believe, as do we, that we will all meet again one day in heaven. But until then sweet friend, we are wishing for you peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold in your heart.

    All our Love,
    Delma & Sherry

    A sweet man who loved God and his family has gone to his reward. He will be greatly missed by those whose
    lives he touched. Jane, may God comfort you as only He can. You can be reassured that you will see Dave
    again.
    Much love and sympathy,
    Fran

    Wanda you know I share in your sadness, I have lost a lot of people in my live but none was more painful than my brother. More so because he left us so soon. David and my prayers are for you and your family. This fills me with great sadness.
    I will be here for you to laugh, recall and cry whatever you need. God be with you and your family.

    To me,Dave was like a brother,a star in the darkness shining God’s love and blessing into my life. When going through a rough time in my life,Dave would listen with warm rays of love and tell me all would be alright. There will be a big void in my life,but I know he is having a joyful time in paradise!
    Thank you, Jane, for all you mean to me. I know we will always be there for one another. I love you,dearly.Stella

    Grandpa,
    it’s the night before your visitation and I’m in Kingsport, TN getting ready to play in the conference tournament to see how well we’ve done all year. This week determines if we go to Nationals and I know you will be watching and gleaming down from heaven. Oh, Heidi and I made first team all conference. It’s a great award showing all our hard work this year. I’m hoping I can hit you a home run this week. And maybe just maybe win it all. I miss you everyday!
    Love you always,
    Heather

    Dave – Although I did not know you well, what I do know is how happy you made Jane and how your smile touched everyone around you. You will be sorely missed. I am sad that you are no longer here on earth with us but rejoice in knowing exactly where you are!
