Not sure what to say?

Pat, I'm so sorry for the passing of David. He was a really great man. I enjoyed the talks we had many times when he would come to the shop in the evenings. I know he is in a much better place and is taking care of the landscape there as he loved to do. If you need anything please don't hesitate to call on me.
Prayers for you and the entire family.

Pat and family,
I am so sorry to here about David. He was a great man and may he rest in peace. Love you!

Pat I am so sorry to hear of David's passing. I know the last few years have been difficult and I know he was not the man he wanted to be. May he rest in peace and may you rest knowing he is at peace. Praying for you and your family.

Willard Family,
Lloyd & I are very sorry for the loss of David. We will never forget and always appreciate his help with our electricity. Also, with the maintenance of Dillon Woods. We will miss not seeing him out working in his yard. We know he is going to be missed. Very good neighbor. May God Bless Pat and the entire family.

Dave and I worked together closely for several years at AEP. He was a gentleman, a professional, and I developed great fondness and respect for him. His political and religious views were very different from mine but he was always very respectful in discussing them and I never felt we were at odds with each other. I know he loved his family and will be greatly missed by them.

Sorry for your loss. Prayers for the Family.

We are so sorry for your loss. We loved your dad so much Annette! He is one of the greatest men and we feel so blessed to have known him. Sending you and your family our love and prayers.
