Brother

You gave no one a last farewell,

Nor ever said good-bye.

You were gone before we knew it,

And only God knows why.

A million times we will miss you.

A million times we will cry.

If love alone could have saved you,

You never would have died.

In life we loved you dearly.

In death we love you still.

In our hearts you hold a place,

No one else can fill.

It broke our hearts to lose you,

but you didn’t go alone,

for part of us went with you,

the day God took you home.

We will meet again someday

I know in a better place.

I thank God He made you our brother

While you were here on earth.

Remembering David as a tall skinny kid so full of fun and laughter. Quite often the brunt of our jokes but most often he came out on top. Will be missed but not forgotten. Condolences to all the family. Love always, Judy, Peter and family.

MacDonald family, Words cannot express the sorry I feel in the loss of your beloved son, husband, father, brother, uncle and friend. I was welcomed into your family in the early 70's when I met this 7 year old lad who was so shy. Oh how Wendy loved David and little Teddy. David grew into a handsome and loving family man. Our faith is so important at a time like this. Things seem so hopeless and out of control, however, we know that with God's help we will make it through this difficult time. Of all sad things we may endure, the saddest is in saying farewell, brother. You will be missed by many. RIP. Love to all Val xxx

Dear Jackie, Evan, Macdonald & Mills Families:

I want you all to know that I am with you all, maybe not in body but in Spirit and Sadness.
I loved David very much and he was always kind and thoughtful to all, I never heard him say an unkind word about anyone. I was so pleased when he asked me to be Evan's God- Mother. I believe that he is in paradise and looking down on us. Praying that God's love will get you through this very sad and difficult time.
Love you all.
Maimie & Uncle Ted.

Sympathy Prayer

Dear Lord, please comfort those in grief,
Love them, lift them, give relief
For loss they’ve suffered, sadness felt;

Creating peace like a gentle breeze,
And as you help them make it through.
Draw them closer, Lord, to you!

Sincere heartfelt condolences ..........
