    Rhonda, you have our deepest regards, I was shocked when I opened up the paper this morning. I had no idea, that David had been ill. I truley will miss talking tractors, farm, and dump trucking with him. You and your son are in our thoughts and prayers. If you need any help on the farm or with anything, just call.
