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. Bob Malone

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)

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!!
