Per David’s request, he will be cremated and there will be a planned memorial service at a later date on the family farm. David has made preparations of accepting Jesus Christ into his heart and headed to his mansion with his Heavenly Father. The most important thing you can do is to be a witness and tell your loved ones about Jesus. Eternity is too long to be wrong! Make your preparations today.
