Emma and family,

My deepest sympathy to you on the loss of your father and for the sorrow in your hearts. I learned recently that he worked with my son (Ponca office) from time to time. Have been thinking of you and want you to know that if you ever need to talk, you know where my office is. There are no perfect words to offer at a time like this, but may all of you be comforted by the precious memories you have of him. May God grant you an abundance of strength, courage, peace and comfort in the days ahead.

I remember your family very well from Polo, IL days. Your dad was a great guy always willing to help with our 4-H club activities. A great Christian man that shared that love of Christ with his wife and children. Blessings to you.

Rev. Lisa J. Fike

I extend my deepest and sincerest condolences to the Meisenheimer family. David and I were childhood friends, and his father was very helpful to my family, providing us a home to live in. I can vividly remember playing with David and others outside on the vast lawn at the church parsonage. I also have fond memories of playing with him on the playground at the Mendon Elementary School when we were in kindergarten. In loving memory my friend. Until I see you in heaven.
