John and I want to offer our sincere sympathy to you and your family upon hearing of Dave's passing. We pray for comfort and peace in the coming weeks. This has been a help in loss for us. The deepest level of worship is praising God in spite of the pain, thanking God during the trials, trusting Him when we're tempted to lose hope and loving Him when he seems so distant and far away At my lowest, God is my hope. At my darkest, God is my light At my weakest, God is my strength. At my saddest, God is my comforter. We will be praying for you.
