We heard songs written and sung by David, a reading of Psalm 139 (message version).
Songs included God’s not Dead by the newsboys; It is well with my soul, by Matt Redman;  Oh Lord you’re beautiful by Keith Green and My Lighthouse by the Rend Collective.
Ollie Hall shared memories of David and there were bubbles!!
David and Rachel used to blow and catch kisses, like bubbles.
The refreshments afterwards – as requested by David, were Sandwiches and Chips, followed by Ice Cream with marshmallows and sprinkles.
There was plenty of tea – as you would expect.

Writing Davids Last Chapter

David has asked me to write the last chapter of his story for this website.

I will be doing this over the next few weeks.  Most of the recent greetings and thoughts  on Facebook were read to him and encouraged him even though his body was finally losing the battle, this  time to cancer.

David’s story has been an inspiration and encouragement to many.
My thoughts are that the last chapter of his story should be filled with the words  of those who were helped and encouraged by what he shared.

If you were helped or encouraged by David and his story, then please send them to me by submitting them on this form.

Thank you

Roger
