  1. So very sorry for your loss..

    Edith, our sincere condolences to you and your family. Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you. Working with David at the Department of Taxation was a pleasure. He was detail oriented and performed his job in an exceptional manner. Most of all, he was a kind person who laughed easily and I enjoyed having him as a coworker for ten years. You have much to be proud of and we hope your memories will help ease the tremendous loss. Our love.

  2. Deepest Sympathy

    Our sincere sympathy in your loss. Had not seen David for a long time, but always knew him as a really good person. May God go with each member of his family in the months ahead without him.

  3. Sympathy

    dear Edith and family…..our hearts and prayers go out to you all at the passing of David. I am sure this came very unexpectedly but he is going to spend Christmas in a beautiful place with many that loved him.
    I have a commitment on Saturday and will not be attending his funeral. John and I had decided to come up Friday night if that was visitation time but I understand it will be Saturday .
    We will hold you all in our hearts and pray that someday we will all be together again.
    June and Billy are planning to attend.
    Aunt Nancy is unable to travel any distance now. She is living in a lovely facility close to jim and Stephanie in Pennsylvania. She is quite frail but is enjoying the new surroundings.
    You take care and know you all are always welcome in our home.
    Thank you for loving and caring for David… seemed to be a good wife to him.

    In love and prayers,
    Anne and John Bland
