|EULOGIES & CONDOLENCES|
|I am so sorry to hear of the passing of my old ATO
friend. His nickname in the GA AZ Chapter at
Mercer was "Beast" but he was nothing like that.
My sincerest condolences to his family.
|David, I am truly saddened by your
passing, although not completely surprised
based on your response to my "How are
you?" greeting the last time we spoke. I
consider having been befriended by you and
Anne to be one of my greater life
blessings. Because of your strong faith in
The Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit
you will have eternal peace and happiness.
Anne, most sincere love and condolences to
you and your family.|
|While words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, we
look forward to the time when words will fail to capture the joy
of having our heavenly Father return your dear one to you.
May you find comfort in knowing that your dear one is safe in
the memory of God, who will remember every detail about him
and bring him back again. (John 5:28, 29)

thoughts and prayers are with you all.|
||Carol & Jimmy Stewart
|Our love and hugs and prayers are with Mrs. Ann, Cheryl, Jay
and families during this difficult time. Remember-David’s
heavenly purpose on earth has been completed but ours has
not. Therefore, he is with Jesus now and we will see him
again if we have Jesus either when our heavenly purpose is
completed or our Savior comes to get His children in the
clouds!! Oh what a glorious day that will be!! |
|So sorry Cheryl and family|
