    Tama IA Dear Dave,

    So very sorry to read of your father’s passing. I hope the many happy memories that you have will help to heal your heart!!

    I remember your dad and the phrase that comes to mind is “gentle giant”. He was very tall, something I always marveled at. I remember him always having a smile on his face whenever I saw him.

    God Bless his memory,
    Sue Mjoness Bugge

    sikver spring MDI would have loved to have known your father, David. What an interesting life he had. It would have been of great interest to me to talk with him of The Children’s Mission Home he helped with. God bless you and Nancy. Thank you for taking such good care of him. Praying for you in this time.

    Sheila
