All our love and sympathy to Debbie and your entire family. Dirk was always kind, fun and the life of the party. We know he is celebrating with our Saviour now and at peace and out of pain; for that we are grateful. Sterling truly loved the time he got to spend on the golf course with Dirk and is so thankful for the friendship they were able to enjoy because of their shared love of golf! We look forward to our heavenly reunion with all of our loved ones!

Debbie, Our hearts go out to you and the girls. Dirk was always so good to us. We are praying that the comforter will help you all in the difficult days to come. The peace of mind you have is in scripture it says to absent in this life means that we are present with the Lord, and the promise that now Dirk is healed. The two of you made a beautiful couple and made a beautiful family as well. We love you Debbie and are in our prayers.
