  1. So sorry for your loss! I am working and can’t get out of it so I’m sending my love and support. I thought the world of David and always enjoyed his association. I wish the best and Heaven’s blessings on all the family.

    Sincerely… Jody

  2. To Uncle David’s family May you have the comfort you need at this time of grief. You are a very special family and we love you.

  3. May your hearts be comforted at this time. My deepest sympathy to you and your family. I have fun memories when we were children. We visited Aunt Alida’s home and played with Andy, Varie & Virgina. We saw each other while visiting Grandma Betty & Grandpa Witt’s home.
    Cousins are our friends first in this life and we are connected forever.
