  2. Laura,

    I cannot begin to imagine what you are going through and how difficult this must be for you and your family. Please know that I am always here for you – whether to talk or cry or even just sit in silence with you. I feel the best way to honor someone who is not with us anymore is to continue living our life and keep their memory alive through everyday events. David would have wanted that for all of you and expected nothing less.

    Perhaps they are not stars, but rather, openings in heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy. – Unknown

  7. Laura, I am so very sorry to hear of David’s passing. It has been many years since I worked with all of you at COM and I was especially grateful for David’s friendship and desire to do what was best for the College. He often spoke of visiting the east coast with you and I had always hoped you two would stop by and visit. I enjoyed his company and wry humor. I regret that the two of you did not have many more years together. He was a big man but a kind and gentle soul. I hope the Almighty gives you the strength to overcome your loss. I always remembered him and you as well as so many of the good people at COM. May God bless you and your family.

  12. Please accept my deepest condolences for your recent loss. We desire to enjoy life with those that we love. Therefore, it is only natural that we yearn to see our dear loved ones again. Notice what Jesus promised at John 5:28, 29. This promised future is in harmony with God’s original purpose. (Genesis 1:28) May you find the needed comfort and strength in the days that lie ahead.

  13. Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of your dear loved one. Death is a difficult subject to discuss and bear. No wonder why the Bible likens it to a deep sleep. (Psalm 13:3; John 11:11) Jesus himself compared death to sleep because people can be awakened from death by means of a resurrection, thanks to the power of Jehovah. The Bible assures us that the time will come when “death is no more.” (Rev. 21:4) Knowing that our deceased loved ones in God’s memory are merely asleep in death and awaiting a resurrection can give us solace and arouse our desire to carry on with life. Think of the happiness you will feel when you see David Wayne Divine again!

  14. I would like to send my condolences to the family. When someone dies, it’s very painful. But the Bible talks about God doing away with pain at Revelation 21:4. May the God of comfort provide solace to your family at this time.

  15. David was one of my best friends in third and fourth grade, right around the corner from us on Prairie Road. Then we met back up as teammates in ’72 and ’73. I know I’m not alone saying I have nothing but fond memories of him. To the entire family and those who miss him most, may you experience God’s matchless grace, mercy and peace in abundance, both now, and always……………Matthew 11:28 – 30.
