    So sorry to hear about Dave. Wish I had known he was ill I would have visited him. He and the Echoes of Heaven have a special place in my heart along with my sister Bonnie. Will keep you all in my prayers.

    It is unfortunate that our brother in Christ has left us so soon. His work here in this world was wonderful and a blessing to many. However, let us all remember that Dave is still very much alive and in Paradise, and that this is only a temporary parting, for we will see our beloved brother again when our Great God, and Savior, Jesus Christ returns and all the Saints with Him. Amen.

  5. Debby and Tom Osborne says:

    Sad that Dave has departed this earth, joyful that he is with the Lord ‘s Heavenly Choir . Tom and I were so glad he was part of our wedding ceremony, he sang heartfeltly and beautifully. He sang “The Lord’s Prayer and “Can Two Walk Together?”. Lovely Kathryn Bowman also sang,”Walk Hand In Hand.”
    I enjoyed having him as a choir director. He had a good ear, pitch, tone and timing. He was a big child at heart, honest, caring and a devoted servant to the Lord.
    Sympathy and comforting hugs and wishes to Dan and Cheryl, all the familly and friends. May your Dad Glenn, Dave be singing with many of our brothers and sisters accompanied by Bonnie on piano an Bill Smith on guitar. They are making joyful noises.
