hi papa .! Its December 28th, 2013 . I know you can't see this , but it's been 11 years that you haven't been next to me . it's been 11 years that you left us all to be happier up in heaven with god . now you don't suffer , now you don't hurt , now alls that happens is you watch all of us down here . you know I miss you tons . and I love you a lot . I just went a visited you today . I found your grave stone , all because you helped me . I really wish you were here with me today .. it would mean a lot to me if you just came down for one more day so I can at least day goodbye . today was a really hard day for me , I cryed a lot because of how much I missed you. reading all these comments just made me cry , mostly all because they were grandmas , but all the others made me cry just as we'll . papa you meant everything to me . you were my best friend , my jungle gym , my everything. & I don't know how I made it this long without breaking down because of how much I missed you . I don't know how I made it this long in general . you are by far the best papa I've ever had . no one can replace you . I wish I was able to give you the "# 1 grandpa" gold money clip that I bought you for Christmas at the Santa shop . I just wish that I could just spend one more day with you , now that I'm older , your death hits me harder and harder everyday . but everytime I look up into the sky , your the brightest star always right above me . it's hard to find words to even describe how I feel , but just know that I really love you , and that your missed tons by all of us , but especially by me . papa I love you with all my heart -Deanna (your baby)

Merry Christmas Dave,It's Christmas morning 2008 and it's been six years now without you. I have something I'm going to put in here just for you."If roses grow in Heaven Lord,please pick a bunch for me; Place them in my husband's arms and tell him they're from me. Tell him I love him and miss him, and when he turns to smile, Place a kiss upon his cheek and hold him for awhile. Because remembering him is easy, I do it everyday; But there is an ache within my heart, That will never go away. Love always and forever Sharon

Merry Christmas Love you Dave 2007 Your wife Sharon
It's Xmas 2007.I have always remembered what my son in law Dave read at Dave's funeral.It will always stay with me.So I have decided to put this out there for those who may go in to write here or just to read.He was a good man. 'To say I knew a great person,not only was he a son,a brother to his sibling's,a nephew,a coworker,a friend.But,there came a time for him to assume the role as a boyfriend and then as a husband to his wife.Along with that,he also assumed a role that will forever affect the lives of young people in Sharon's life....Her grand children.for Dave was around when quite a few were born and seen some grow into teenagers. I know he loved everyone of them,because he took care of them at times,babysat them.Played with them,watched movies with them,played video games with them.Took them out on his boat many times and many other things that he did with them.He has spent every Christmas with them and quite a few Holiday's.Even manned the video camera.I never saw him in a bad mood or conplain about being in in that loud confusion of yelling,crying laughing,playing all the thing's kid's do. I want to thank you now Dave,for being in mine and my children's lives.I will never forget you or the good thing's you did for us.I also wish there were alot more people like you Dave.You are a great man,rest in peace.You deserve it' Your son in law 'Dave' I hope that everyone who may see this will know what a very good man Dave really was.He will never be forgotten.This is for you Dave Anderton I will alway's love you Your wife Sharon
David I know you will never see this. This is really more for me then it is for you. There were two very important people in my life when I was a teenager one was you David the other was Julie.
I had a big change happen to me that lead me to look for you and her not to interfere with your lives not even to contact you I just wanted to see that you both were doing well which was my prayer. Then I found out about your passing. I know I can't see you again in this life but even as teenagers we all knew that GOD loved us. That was a hope planted in us from our youth. When I found out about you it broke something in my heart even I don't understand it myself. I guess the loss of a teenage friend is more then one can bare there must be something so special about ones innocence. I am happy that you have had so many wonderful friends and family in your live that they have put down so many wonderful words to you and about you. I know that time will heal my wound also of your passing. I will remember you as a wonderful friend of so many years ago. The tears will stop the pain will heal.
I will always see you as a young teenager running with all you might to the top of a hill always chasing a dream which you caught and shared with me so many years ago.
David to just let you know I think about you and will miss you on this sad day. GOD allows people in your live for a reason as I get older I can see a little better why you and Mark were there you both had such great work ethics I could of learned much from both of you.
I miss you. Your Friend Bruce.
Well,Dave today is Dec.8,2007.It now has been 5 yrs. since you have left.I still fine it so hard to believe it's been that long.I'm decor. the tree today and I so miss your laugh,you shaking your head when I think of doing something different,or something stupid.I'm getting better at this but I still fine this time of the year so very hard with out you.I so wish you were still here.I guess that will never change,you will always be apart of me no matter what.So Mr. Dave Merry Xmas and may you rest in peace. Your wife, Sharon
David a few days have passed since I learned of your leaving this place. You have been on my mind and in my heart for those days. So many wonderful memories I have gone over.
I remember our friend Homer and how we would hood surf on my Mustang on the old dirt roads of Selfridge Air base. Coming home from the movies on those cold winter nights.How you even introduced me to the girlfriend I had on base Sharon Malibu. You were the best David a friend of my youth nothing can or will take that from me. We will have wonderful days again. I know we will see each other again someday in a better time and place.
I even remember how you loved to come over to my house and eat hot pepper cheese my mother bought from the base Commissary. One of my last memories of you was when you came home for Marks wedding and had that big black eye from getting hit with a can of Soda. Funny how you take so much for granted and how the little things stay planted in your mind.
Thank you for so many wonderful memories they were so many of them I have only written a few. You know them all. To many to ever write down. I love you and miss you David Your Friend Bruce.
David you were my friend. I will always love you. You made me smile and happy. I am sorry if I ever hurt you.
I love your family, Mark was also my friend this is so hard to write I should have told you before forgive me. You may only be able to count your true friends on your hand you were one of them David. I miss you and will see you again one day in heaven. Because of the love your mother and father showed me that their is a loving GOD
Your whole family is a shinning light of love. How many times did they take in lost wild teens and show them love only the LORD knows.
Thank you David for being my friend.

I have a list of folks I know..all written a book,And every now and then..I go and take a look.That is when I realize these names..they are just a part, Not of the book they"re written in..but taken from the heart. Each name stands for someone..who"s crossed my path sometime. And in that meeting they have become..the reason and my rhyme. Although it sounds fantastic..for me to make this claim"I really am composed..of each ones remembered name. Although your not aware.. of any special link,Just knowing you,has shaped my life..more then you could think. So please don't think my greeting..as just a mere routine, Your name was .not at all..forgotten in between.For when I send a greeting..that it's addressed to you,It is because you're on the list..of folks I'm indebted to.So whether I have known you..for many days or few,In some ways you have a part..in shaping things I do. I am ultimately a tolal..of many folks I've met,You are afriend I would prefer..not to forget. So while I type this sonnet..what lies upon my heart,So please don't forget..Put this Horace before the Cart. Thanks for being our friend!
Bill, Tish & family,
I was so saddened to hear of your loss, and sorry I was away and couldn't attend the services.
My heart and prayers are with you dear friends in this time of loss.
Bill and Family,
My thoughts and prayers have been with you during this stressful time of loss. I thank God that your strong faith will see you through this.
Don't grieve for me for now I'm free,
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard Him call,
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
I found that peace at the close of the day.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes, these things I too will miss.
But be not burdened with times of sorrow,
For I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full. I've savored much,
Good friends, good times and loved ones' touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your ears and share with me.
God wanted me now.
He set me free!
We know nothing can take away your sadness....but we hope the warmth of your memories of David and the concern of those who care so much about you can bring you some comfort during these difficult days. Love Grandmother Cowher, Aunt Mary & Uncle Richard
MY GRIEVENCE IS WITH ALL THE ANDERTONS. THEY WERE LIKE FAMILY TO ME.IHAD MANY GOOD TIMES WITH DAVE HE WILL BE SADLY MISSED.SORRY I COULD NOT ATTEND.YOU'LL ALWAYS BE IN MY THOUGHTS,AND PRAYERS.

Our love goes out to you for your loss of David.
Bill and the members of your family, I want to express my sincere sympathy . May our Loving Heavenly Father put His Arms around you to sustain and comfort.I am praying for you as you pass through these sad days,without your son. Miriam
Bill & Family our deepest sympathies to you and your family. I know the pain of losing a loved one and share your pain. I know I'm way down here but please know we are thinking of you at this difficult time. Love Sue & Colleen
Mark and Janet,
My condolences to you and your family on the passing of your brother.
Dear John and Family,
We are so sorry to hear about David's passing. I know how difficult this time can be. I lost my mother 2 years ago and Ashok lost his only 9 months ago.
But I know that our loved ones continue on, they are not gone. In fact they are still very much apart of our lives. Both my mother and Ashok's mother have made themselves known to us in many ways after their passing. Keep your hearts open to this. David will try to contact you to let you know he is alright.
Know David is still with you. It will make him very happy to know that you know he is still there.
All our love
Joey and Ashok (Jane's Uncles)
TO THE DAVE ANDERTON FAMILY;
WE ARE SO SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS.
THE FURESZ FAMILY
On behalf of Cindy, Alan, Melanie Harvey and myself please accept our sincere condolences. It is such a shock to go so unexpectedly. I know you all will be alright because of your strong faith and christian values. Again we are so sorry for your loss. All of our love to you. The Hanson bunch and Melanie. God bless you all.
