I will miss you Dave. You always had time to educate me about the outdoors , the garden and all the other pleasures you found in life. Thanks for all the yearly harvests that you and Jeanette provided my family and I ,( I always looked for ward to the "Garden Bonuses").Thanks for letting me watch your family grow up and see the love that you all shared. I will think of you often as the peach tree blooms, the asparagus grows or the "Bass Bite". Thanks for sharing the simple pleasures of life with me over the years. Your Friend , John Canestraro

No loss is simple. We may search for true comfort, but it is hard to find. There is hope, and comfort from God. John 5:28,29: “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out...” Those who have died are in Gods memory, they have the prospect of being brought back to life. Not only will God comfort us now, but he will provide a resolution in the near future that will reunite us with those we have lost. Please accept my sincere condolences at this difficult time.
