Condolences & Memories (5 entries)

  • My heart goes out to you, Brenda, and to your family in this difficult hour. I remember Dave as a very pleasant, honest, humble and giving person. I met him through my contact with you, and especially remember his driving us to the reserve, and to special meetings at It's A New Day. Brenda, the grieving will take time - Rien passed away in 2010, so I understand some of what you are going through. I pray that the eternally comforting words of Psalm 23 will overshadow you at this time: Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. I expect to be in Manitoba during the first 2 weeks in August, should you want to have coffee. 204 990 4729 Grace's cell. Love and prayers. - Posted by: Frances Van Mil (Friend) on: May 19, 2019

  • We are so very saddened to hear of this wonderful man and our kind neighbor's passing. From dropping off fresh tomatoes to our door or candy treats to our boys at Halloween - to saying hi over the fence as we enjoyed our pool and you enjoyed your deck in the summers... we will miss seeing his friendly face and chatting about our front lawns. Please know we are just next door and can lend a hand anytime you need it. Our sincere condolences. - Posted by: Tim & Cheryl Mcqueen (Neighbor ) on: Apr 24, 2019

  • Brenda & loved ones, Very good, relaxed, genuine, picture of David! Makes me proud. David was always serious about his relationship with Jesus....prob the same way he did his accounting. Dave’s gentleness shone through his seriousness with his measured laughter during our meetings at FGBMFI. He put up with our faux pas and covered our many sins by his prayers for us knuckleheads. Of course it hurts to see someone leave us in this realm but Brenda you can look forward to being greeted soon enough by Dave (1Thes 4:13) Meantime though remember all those good times and know that we, the body of Christ love you and your family at this important time and many prayers are being sent up to guide your feet at this time, to comfort you and help you in every way possible. I can’t be there physically but I can lift all of you up to help you through the difficult time now and from time to time as you get strong again this year. So sorry to see Dave go and your loss is shared. God bless You. Dr. Dean Breivik. THOMPSON, MB - Posted by: Dr. Dean Breivik (Friend to Dave and Brenda through FGBMFI) on: Apr 24, 2019

  • Brenda, Sorry to hear of your loss. You and Dave were the first ones to reach out to us when we first started going to zion. Always appreciated the friendship that I had with Dave and you. My condolences to you and your family - Posted by: Ross MacKay (freind) on: Apr 21, 2019

  • Brenda, I was so very sorry to see today that Dave has passed away. Although we never met, through our many phone calls after you bought me home, I felt he and you were the perfect couple to look after my perennials and the yard, and I know you enjoyed good family times at the your house! It is always sad to read of a friend's death, and I know you will miss him immensely. Do know you are in my thoughts and please feel free to call me here in Salmon Arm at any time.
