  1. Nancy, David and Carol,
    Please accept my condolences on the loss of your father, Harvey. I first became acquainted with him when David was a member of the wrestling team. He enjoyed watching David, as well as the rest of the boys, compete. He was a great supporter of the program. I loved his sense of humor. I know you all will miss him dearly. Unfortunately I will be out of town at the time of his visitation, but i want you to know that I will be thinking about you all. May God Bless and keep you all.
    Don Porter.

  2. I am so sorry for the loss of your father. I pray for comfort and peace for your family. May the angels carry him to a wonderful place where he and your mother are reunited, and there is no more pain or suffering.

  3. Accept my condolences with the passing of your father. I enjoyed many lunches and times with your mother and father; memories will live forever. He will be sorely missed. Find comfort in God the Father.

  4. David, so sorry for the loss of your father. We will keep your dad and your family in our prayers.

  5. Your Dad’s name came up this week as my Dad was pondering who he might still know at Immanuel. Sorry to learn that he was having difficulties and now has passed on. The heavenly choir is one terrific voice stronger. I so enjoyed singing with him and was happy to run into him and your Mom over the years since. Now they are together again. You are in my prayers.

Leave your Condolence
