Dear Jane, We are so sorry for your loss. Prayers for comfort. Anthony & Kay Howard Honey
Sorry for your family’s loss. I’ve known him a lifetime, from the time I was big enough to walk. He was a very nice man, and we’ve shared a lot of laughs.
Very Sorry for our loss of “Uncle Dave”. He was a hard working man, coon dog trainer and a coon hunter. He had a good life and a loving family. I vividly see him plowing the fields with his mules and milking cows and he made the best cured hams ever.
Danny, Jane, Amber, & family, i am so sorry for the loss of Mr.David. May God wrap his arms around you all during this time. xoxo, Dionna.
Cousin Dave will be missed. I didn’t get to visit him often but I prayed for him often that he would NOT be in pain as he waited for the end. At last he will be at Rest
I am so sorry for your loss. Growing up at Beech Grove Methodist, we shared some really wonderful times.
