  1. So sorry for your loss.

  2. To Nancy, Angela and the entire Rudolph family:

    We are so sorry to hear of Dave’s passing. He was a wonderful, kind, caring man. Your family meant so much to me during my time in ministry with you at ACC. We join you in praise that Dave is now with our Savior and that we will all be reunited someday. Love to you all from Paula, Polly, and Vi Gentry

  3. Nancy; We are saddened by the loss of your husband. Dwayne we are saddened by the loss of your Father; and we are saddened by the loss of our Dear Brother-in-law. Dave has been more than a brother-in-law. He has been a true friend, always willing to help with any thing that we desired. He will be missed. We are comforted to know that Dave now lives in God’s presence.

  4. To Nancy and the entire family:

    I am truly sorry for the loss of a great man. He was a wonderful co-worker and a wonderful friend. I worked with him for many years at IDNR. So sorry for your loss.

  5. He was a great guy. A good friend and Christian brother. I enjoyed his smile and warm hand shakes so much. Joking with him always gave me great pleasure. Nancy and Duane – my prayers are with you at this time.
