I just heard of David’s passing and am very sorry to hear this news. Dave was good guy. We knew each other in KY and then Indiana. Everyone loved him. I’m just saddened by the news.

To the Family, so sorry for your loss. Hope you will be comforted in knowing that David has the prospect of being resurrected, healthy (in the flesh), to Paradise Earth just as Jehovah God has promised. In fact , the vast majority will enjoy everlasting life right here on earth as God had intended from the beginning. God's Kingdom will do this under the rule of Jesus Christ.
