Memories Timeline


  1. Please accept my deepest condolences for the loss of David. I can only imagine the pain you are experiencing right now. However, I’m convinced that God is aware of the pain you and your family are experiencing right now. In fact, 1 Peter 5:7 says, ‘While you throw all your anxiety upon him, because he cares for you.’? So when you all feel down, throw all your troubles on God. Psalm 55:22 encourages us to do so. It says, ‘Throw your burden upon Jehovah (God’s name) himself. And he himself will sustain you. Never will he allow the righteous on to totter.’? I hope you all will find these scriptures encouraging.

  2. Dear Mike and family,

    This is indeed sad news. We are so very sorry for your tremendous
    loss. We pray the Presence of our Holy Comforter to give you loving peace at this time and throughout the years. You and your family are in our prayers, Mike. Hugs

  3. Our brave Dave is gone and we will miss him forever. To Brandi and Helen and all of Dave’s family, we send you our heart-felt condolences. Dave touched our lives in the most wonderful way and will live on in our memories for a lifetime.

  4. Dear Witthoft Family,
    We are thinking of you daily, and asking God to envelop you in the Spirit’s comfort as you grieve. May the presence of God in the midst of the ‘two or more of you gathered together’ give you each strength and hope for the days ahead, as well as fond remembrances of David. We love you, Marybeth, Scott, & Grace

  5. You are all in my thoughts and prayers daily. My husband Rick, and Dave have been friends for many years. Dave was Ricks best friend. He was like the brother I never had. He is so sadly missed. He was one of the kindest men I’ve ever known. He was so proud of Brandi, and he loved her dearly. We are deeply saddened and I pray that God gives you the strength and comfort you need during this time.

  6. Our thoughts, prayers, and condolences are with Brandi, Eileen, Mike, and all the family and friends of Dave.

  7. I am writing on behalf of Brother Wolf Animal Rescue. Thank you to all who have donated to our rescue on behalf of David. I wish that I would have had the opportunity to know this man as I am sure if he loved and cared for animals as much as we do, we would have been great friends. Thank you and my condolences to all who knew and loved him.

  8. Eileen ,

  9. Dear Eileen and Brandi

    When I met David love entered my heart. One bright day I had a car accident
    and David stopped to console me.

    He lives yet in our hearts.

    Gods Love
