  1. Just want you all to know how much David will be missed. He was always kind to me and often would help us out. God gained a special Angel when He called David home you will be missed . But Praise God we will all see you again one day. 1 John 3:1-3 Behold, what manner of LOVE the FATHER hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. 2.Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when HE SHALL APPEAR, WE shall be like Him; for we shall see him as he is.3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure. God bless you all .Always in my prayers In JESUS Name. Becky & John Mitchell

    Dear Iris and Russell family-
    We didn’t get to meet David until just a short time ago. We never knew the man on the inside but, we saw the love mirrored in the eyes of a wife and companion of many years. We saw a strong faith and independence built by trusting in God’s promises and knowing Jesus’ grace is all we ever need, day in-day out.
    David, we’ll see you again at the Lord’s table. Until then, have fun with Abba, brother!
    In Christ’s love,
    The Turners
