Dear, dear Davis family. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Your dear dad blessed all of us with his warmth and authenticity. Wendy, you have been the Proverbs 31 wife and mother. What a blessing it is to know that he is with Jesus, as He prayed in John 17:24, and that we will join him to be together for eternity. Family Camp will never be the same. I love you all and will hold you close in prayer.
