David and his wife Deborah were friends of ours for 45 yrs. We watched our families grow, loved old cars, and had many good times together. He will be missed. His family will be in our hearts and prayers. John and Betsy Root.

Dave and Debbie Dann were friends for many years and our families shared many fun times together...especially camping. Most of all, though, their faith in their Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ always brought them back together. It was their one true focal point. They are and will be missed by the Scheffler family here and now but we have that Blessed Hope that their faith has reunited them again and that we, too, will also share in such. ‘John and Lisa,’ your parents were a gift from God and we were privileged to have them here as our friends. We offer our prayers of comfort for you especially in this time of uncertainty and inability to comfort one another physically. May the Holy Spirit envelop you and your families with His presence. Grateful to have been blessed by your Mom and Dad, Donald and Melody, Matthew and Allison Scheffler
