Sorry I couldn't come to visitation or funeral because of my work schedule. As long as I can remember, I've known your dad as a friendly, caring person who was always the same whenever you saw him. Cherish your memories; they'll last forever. I'll always remember that he was responsible for finding Phyllis after her fatal fall. For that, we're all grateful. God bless all of you.

I didn't meet David (that I remember, anyway) until my family moved back to Magnolia in 1971, when I was about to begin the 4th grade. I knew his brother, Hughes, sister Geneva and his mom, my Great Aunt Olen before I remember meeting David...but then, as a kid, those "connections" are hard to put together in your mind. I always enjoyed explaining how David, Hughes & Geneva were my "double cousins". I usually called him Dave...or Mr. Dave. Dave was one of my first employers. I was shown where the mower and gas were kept out in the barn and I mowed the yard at least once a week...and more often when conditions demanded. Being a Peace, I was taught how to mow - to suit a Peace - and I didn't have any problem suiting David. I was always near being finished when he'd get home from work around 5:30 in the evenings. He would often bring me a glass of sweet tea along with his compliments for a job well done and my pay and we'd share some good conversation before I'd go home. I made a whopping $6 per mowing in those days. :-) Dave was always up for some witty exchanges the many times we'd talk and that is probably the thing I'll miss about him the most. I also distinctly remember back in December of 1985 when Dad passed away...not feeling quite so concerned for Mom, knowing Dave was just down the road...and I knew he'd keep an eye on her...and he did. I always appreciated that. I'm sorry I wasn't able to be there last week and to be a part of the service as requested. However, I also know that Dave would have had it no other way...and he would have insisted that I continue on with my plans that took me out of town last week. My heart is lighter though, knowing that in his last days, he said more than once not to "pray me out of Heaven...I'm ready". I know that he was ready and he's rejoicing today, having received his Heavenly reward. I'll always cherish my memories of him. To Randy and Becky...my love and sympathy in the days and weeks ahead. "Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks; for this is the will of Christ Jesus concerning you." I Thes. 5:16-18
