Private Condolence

Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss.
May the peace of God that surpasses all understanding guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus.” (Phil. 4:7) May the hope of a resurrection right here on a restored earth bring you comfort. (John 5:28, 29) Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life) Psalm 37:11, 29) But the meek will possess the earth, And they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace. The righteous will possess the earth, And they will live forever on it.

My deepest sympathy

So sorry to hear this about his death for his "girls" as he would say: David Earl was a good human being and I am glad to have known him, `happy trails my friend until we meet again'

David was a wonderful man. Paul Sturdivant and I would visit with him and Pam and always had great times. Never a dull moment with him. Rest In Peace, dear David.

So sad to hear of David's passing, we had a lot of great times growing up in West Monroe. We were all like a big family. Many good racing memories at Harmon Raceway and street racing. Happy I got to share our youth together and survived all the crazy things we did. He will be missed by many, comfort and peace during you time of grief. God Bless! Your friend, Roger Corley

My condolence to the family I have eaten many Shipley donuts and hamburgers they were the best. I had known David since we were in grade school. He was such a nice person and will certainly be missed.
