Well where do I start, there so many memories from a long time ago my uncle David he was a good man he worked hard as a Iron Worker to support and take care of his Family and as my Grand Father, my Dad and all of my other Uncles and the whole; clan it took its' tole on him but he he did his very best to put a roof and food on the table. he will be severely missed but he is now at peace and I believe he is in all of the Glory of God in Heaven where there is no pain tears or sadness. the last time I saw him was when Cora was with me when I was driving Big Rig we had got a load out of South Carolina coming to Arizona and I made it a point to come threw Xenia so I see Uncle David and aunt Jean and to introduce them to my Cora he was looking good, we talked about times when I was a little boy when Grand Paw him Uncle Jim Beal, Raymond,Toad,Frog,Lester, Hoppy and my Dad would set drinking Coffey and eating the Hobo Stew that Grand Paw had Been cooing most of the day"" there in front of thire Trailer at the Shady Court Trailer on 3rd street in San Bernardino, CA. those where the Happy times""" one thing I remember when Mark would take some thing apart or brake some thing or just be into a little mischief Uncle David would get on-em and little mark would stand in front David with big crocodile tears coming down and David would have his Belt out mark would be saying Dale did it Daddy Dale did it, yes I will miss My Uncle David he was a very good Man and he was a very gentile and Kind Man. You are there with your Mom and Dad my Mom and Dad and Uncle Jim and all the Clan that has went before you rest in peace, and may the good Lord give to Mark,Dale,Becky and Steve peace and solace to there souls know that who ever believes in ( Yeshua ) Christ shall never die but will have ever lasting life in him for he is life and no man comes unto the Father but threw him. The lord keep you and give you-all Peace"""""
