  Success or failure in life isn't defined by money or position, rather by the people whose life you change through your life, whether for good or ill, true wealth is measured by the people in our lives that love us.

  I know you miss me. I see the pain inside your heart, but I am not so far away. We aren't really apart. I send you each a special gift from my Heavenly Home above; " My Undying Love! " After all, " Love" is the gift more precious than pure gold. It was always most important in the stories Jesus told.

  Think of the Tales of David B. Williams---As a tremendous collection of short stories. Now that the collection is complete, and Mr. David B. Williams has retired....You can go back and re-read your favorite chapters again and again and again---in your GOD given memories. I invite you to :

* Bookmark the good parts-

* Be sure to look at all of the pretty pictures--

* And as David would have most certainly insisted--feel free to color outside of the lines.

Long Live David.

Peace.

Yes, David will live forever in the hearts and memories of all that loved him.

  I did not live for money, nor the accumulation of material possessions, nor for fleeting pleasures. Rather I lived for that which was priceless, unpossessible, and everlasting---For the love of those who I still love from Heaven above.

  My Dearest loved ones...There's no fairy godmother to make my wish come true. No genie in a bottle to bring me to you. No prayer on a fallen star. No magic potion in a jar. But, I can dream and when I do. I dream that I am still there with you.~` I will love you all forever~~Dave

  The measure of a man....Not: ' How did he die?" but " How did he live ?".....Not : "What did he gain ?" but "What did he give ?".....Not : ' What was his shrine ?' Nor " What was his creed ?" But " Had he befriended those really in need ?".....Not: " What did the piece in the paper say ? But " How many people were sorry that he passed away ?" " Was he ever ready with a word or good cheer, to bring back a smile, or to banish a tear.".....These are the units to measure the warmth of a man as a man, regardless of birth.~~George Kessler--U.S. Navy Retired--Louisville, Ky.

  Softly the leaves of memories fall, gently you gather and treasure them all. No length of time can take away, your thoughts of Dave from day to day. Whatever else you fail to do, you will never fail to think of your most beloved Dave.~~Margaret Collins Louisville Ky.

  In Memory of Dave a wonderful and kind man...I quiver, I shiver. They tell me the news. I wonder why he chose you. I walk the streets remembering you. No matter what they say, it is till the same. Only you could fill the void. I know you're okay and feel no pain, but with each passing day, I say a prayer asking GOD to take care of you---Dave was a wonderful friend that I could tell anything and everything. I'm sure gonna miss him.--S. Smith

  Don't stand by my grave and weep; I am not there. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on the snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awake in the morning's hush, I am the swift uplifting rush of bird's in circled flight. I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry. I am not there. I did not die.

  I am wearing a pair of shoes. They are ugly shoes.

Uncomfortable shoes. I hate my shoes. Each day I wear them , and each day I wish I had another pair. Some days my shoes hurt so bad that I do not think that I can take another step. Yet, I continue to wear them. I get funny looks wearing these shoes. They are looks of sympathy. I can tell in other's eyes that they are glad they are my shoes and not theirs. They never talk about my shoes. To learn how awful my shoes are might make them uncomfortable. To truly understand these shoes you must walk in them. But , once you put them on, you can never take them off. I now realize I am not the only one who wears these shoes. There are many pairs in this world. Some people are like me and ache daily as they try to walk in them. Some have learned how to walk in them so they don't walk so much. Some have worn the shoes so long that day's will go by before they think about how much they hurt. No mother deserves to wear these shoes. Yet, because of these shoes I am a stonger person. These shoes have given me strength to face anything. They have made me who I am. I will forever walk in the shoes of a mother who has lost their child.~~My heart goes out to you. I also walk in your shoes~~ May GOD hold you tightly in his loving embrace tonight and every single night for the rest of your life.~~Cordie Griffin Louisville, Ky.

  Grief like the ocean, comes in waves only to recede and come yet again. But with it comes healing. Memories wash ashore and are bathed by the golden sun. Grab hold of these memories and let them fill the emptiness and bring you peace.

  Heaven's Heroes.....Don't cry for me as I lie in repose, dying for freedom is what I chose.~~There isn't any pain or suffering anymore, because I've walked through Heaven's Door.~~ Here everything is brand new, I'm with my brothers, who were proud to die for freedom too.~~As you stand before me don't weep, it is just my body that is asleep.~~My spirits soar high above, where I'm surrounded by Angel's and GOD's love.~~Thank you for the respects that you pay, I just wanted you to know, I've gone home today.~~My job here on earth is done, and my life in Heaven has just begun.

  Empty Boots...Dog tags over boots laced up, a bayonet stabs the ground. Kevlar perched on a 16 butt, fellow soldiers gather around.....Warriors in their battle gear, weapons at their side. Bow their heads as words are said, to honor one who died....An American hero gave his life defending liberty. The price he paid was gladly done, for country and family.....Those empty boots do not support a body or soul. No more they'll run for cover or some loved one dear to hold.....As one by one, soldiers pass, this tribute to their own. Thoughts fly to their families across the foam....Now salute as TAPS is played, blink tears out of eyes. The ache you feel inside your heart is Freedom's painful price......William E. Meyer U.S. Army Sgt. Retired, Louisville Ky.

Adam D. Jones

Happy Birthday, Adam. You are missed so much every minute of everyday! XOXO ~143~ You will forever be in my heart and on my mind. Love always, Tammy


Laurie Cobb

She was my 3rd and 5th grade teacher. Today I'm 32 and still think about her. She was the best teacher ever. From her hair children stories to her bubbly happiness and kindness she spread. I'll never forget her. She was the teacher who had lunch with the kids in her classroom so everyone had someone to be with. She made my school experience amazing. I will never forget her.. I love you Mrs. Cobb. Sincerely, Forever in my thoughts, Alyssa (Viau) Capone


Larry E Polley Jr

SPC Polley died almost two decades ago so I don't know if this message will be seen. In honor of Memorial Day, my agency hands out cards with names of those who have fallen. This year, 2023, I received the card for SPC Polley and was inspired to look up more on him. I am thankful for his service and sacrifice. My condolences to his family. He is not forgotten.


Paul C. Holter III

Miss you brother


Alex D Gonzalez

Love you and miss you always. Since you been gone it has been hard for everyone. I know you loved what you did, and I want to thank you for our freedom. If I can have you back home and safe living your life man everything would be different. No matter how much money they would offer me I would rather have you alive and home. Money comes and go so it's not worth losing you.


Christopher D Young

hello my name is Jesus Vega I would like to give my condolences to Christopher's family and friends, I served with him in Iraq and slept in the same quarters. I have many fond memories of him. I have never forgotten his sacrifice. I would like to share that the greatest memory I had of Chris is that he would speak highly of his mom and how much she meant to him. Chris was a strong minded person and looked out for other. He was kind and friendly the he made friends with everyone. Chris was truly a great man! I sincerely apologize for not sharing sooner. but would like to express that Chris's memory will never be forgotten! though he is not with us he will always be in spirit! If this message gets to Christopher's mother I she could know she raised a great man and for that I thank you.

James David Parker

I knew James David Parker as "Dave" when he lived in Solon Ohio. We met when I moved into town from out of state. He and his group of friends were a year or two older than me. Dave was a bright beacon of hope and joy to me. I was an unsure young man in a strange place. Dave introduced me to many people and ensured his friends always saved me a seat in the lunchroom. I have fond memories of him and his friends during that time. I doubt so many people would have been as wonderful toward me without Dave's incredible kindness. I've never forgotten his kindness. I hope to be able to pay it forward someday.


Tyler O. Griffin

Condolences to the family. Freedom is not free, it cost this man's life. Thank you is not enough. Grieving is not enough for your loss though it is all we have, the Sandoval Family

Michell Lee Robotham

Karen Sue Juday
