Dear Stella and Betsy:
I only had that one opportunity to meet Dave when Betsy and I drove up to Prospect to visit; but I was so touched with how welcome I was made to feel by Dave and your family. I had meant to return to work with him on our Johnson genealogy; but other duties got in my way and now it's too late. The old saying "never put off for tomorrow what you can do today" really comes back to haunt me. I'm so sorry and want to express my deepest sympathy to all of you for your loss.

Dear Johnson Family,
I wanted to take the time and express my condolences to the family of David.
Although I did not know him I am sure that he will be missed by many. A couple scriptures that may be comforting to your family are brought out in John 5:28,29 and Isaiah 33:24.
I know from experience that reading the Bible  really does bring comfort, I hope it will prove to be the same way for your family.

Dear Johnson family,
I am so sorry for your loss. i cant even begin to know what you are going through at this time. one of the things that has always helped me to cope with the loss of a loved one is the thought found in the Bible at John 5:28,29 also Iss,33:24 May these thoughts bring your family comfort at this time. Once again I am so sorry for your loss.
