Linda, I'm so sorry to hear of Dave's passing. Please know that you and the boys are in my thoughts and prayers during and after this difficult time. You have my deepest sympathy. I know Mom and Dad thought alot of Dave and had alot of fun with you guys. I'm so saddened by this, but know he is with the Lord now and can watch over everyone as they harvest. I'm sure he'll be talking farming up there with Keith and Grandpa Glen and holding your sweet baby, maybe even my Sister for Mom and Dad, too! With love and hugs, Johnna 🙏🏻❤️
