Special thanks from the family to Eugene and Emmie Lyle, Kaitlyn Newcomb, Matthew Filer and Darlene Pacelli-Moore for loving and supporting the family through this difficult time. The family is thankful for all the cards, meals, visits and prayers from all its family and friends. 

Dave asks everyone to follow the two commandments: to love God and to love thy neighbor as thyself, then you will automatically be following all of God’s commandments.
