It’s Time To Pray For Third Wave Dave

Home - by - August 7, 2012 - 18:50 America/New_York - 37 Comments

We received word that he was taken off life-support at noon today.

No word yet if Dave has released himself into the hands of God.

 

 

UPDATE FROM ANDREA SHEA KING
Dear Friends,

Dave is now entered into the beauty of God’s Kingdom. He left us shortly after the medical team removed him from the life sustaining measures this morning. Blessedly, he did not linger longer than 30 minutes.

We will be planning a celebration of Dave’s life in the weeks ahead. Dave was not one to call a lot of attention to himself as many of you know. A private man, his final wishes were simple — Dave asked me to spread his ashes on the beach here in Cape Canaveral. It will be my honor and privilege. Details are yet to be determined, but once plans are made, I’ll keep you apprised.

Several of you have indicated that you want to be present when that happens. I would like that very much and I’ll let you know when the date is set to take place, giving you ample time to make whatever travel arrangements are necessary.

I want to take this moment to thank each of you who have been so kind to send me caring notes following this morning’s email about Dave. Your words have been a source of comfort to me on this very sad day. I truly appreciate your sympathy and wonderful remembrances of Dave. I don’t think he had any idea the impact he had on so many of you, especially those of you in our extensive blogging community.

As you will understand, I won’t be doing my radio show tonight. But it is my intention to dedicate a show in Dave’s honor in the near future, and I hope you’ll join me when I do.

Once again, my heartfelt thank you for your kindnesses. And for your friendship for both Dave and me.

Blessings to you all,

Andrea

    Dave:

    I would like to have seen you get well and get your wish of voting against Obama in November. If that doesn’t come to pass, may your passing be as quiet and dignified as you wish.

    Be sure to say hello to Dutch, Andy, and the others. We’ll keep up the good fight.

    “Dave asked me to spread his ashes on the beach here in Cape Canaveral. It will be my honor and privilege.”

    That means he loved you. The ashes are heavy, so don’t be surprised. My wife left no location so I had to do the best I could on the where. Thought about it for months, think she would have been happy with the choice.

    Dave already knew, just wanted you there one last time. Be well, you, and Dave.
