Memories Timeline


  1. I’m at a loss for words over this . I miss our conversation we had many nights thru messenger . I remember all the crazy things we did growing up , riding 3 wheelers and horses and later in life riding bulls . You were my first friend when we moved up here . I Love you and will always miss you .

  2. CandleImageI’m so sorry Marie, I am at a loss for words. Knowing he is with your parents now puts a little ease on the tremendous sadness that I feel for David, you and his children. I love you.

  3. CandleImageWithout David I definitely wouldn’t be the person I am today. We spent a lot of our teenage years together and I had the pleasure of being a part of his amazing family. Marie was like a sister to me and Betty my second mom. I love them dearly. David & I definitely had our ups and downs throughout the years and boy do I have stories but we always remained friends. May you rest easy David and give your mom a kiss from me. I love you my friend.

  4. God be with you and help you through this difficult time. Please know that many are thinking of you.

    Cindy and Greg Ludington
