This is very sad for Shari and me. Marilyn, you and Dave were a wonderful, important part of our lives. The memories of the times we shared are still living large in our lives, even today. The joys we shared together in service to our wonderful God are a continuing inspiration to our lives today. I pray that God will give you peace in this truly difficult time. We look forward with great anticipation to even more joyful times to share with Dave in a much better place for an eternity of time. We love you.
