    Our prayers and heartfelt condolences to Aunt Ethel, Janet and family, and sisters and brother cousins. We regret that two of our grandchildren have an event in Indianola, Iowa that afternoon, and feel we would not be able to make the times work to be there and back to Indianola. Much love and regrets not be at David’s service. We will miss his wonderful smile and happy personality. Wayne/Marilyn Jackson
