Marty, Derk & Family,
Our sympathy to you. Dave was such a great guy, with a wonderful personality, who could always bring a smile to our faces. We always thought the Vander Wall boys and their folks were pretty special. May God somehow bless you and give you His peace and strength during this difficult time.
Sincerely, Tom & Patty (Velthouse) Graham
