  1. Shirley and family sending prayers and hugs to your family for the loss of your brother

  2. I was so shocked to hear of David’s passing. It was always a joy to see him knowing that he’d say a prayer for me for whatever ailed me. Here’s a prayer for you! Bless you David! Love and miss you!

  3. I remember David well. In the early 1980s when I was pianist for The Promised Land Singers, the Pursifull family (Katy, David, Jim & Richard) followed us anytime we sang in the area. Their home church was Cyclone, but we saw them everywhere and they supported our ministry for several years. I remember them as a lovely family and I was sorry to learn of David’s passing. Blessings on your families today, Shirley & Joy.
