So very sorry for your loss, the times I was with him at ReRe’s he was always so sweet to me. In my heart and prayers.
Robin and Matt,I am so sorry for the loss of your dad. He was a great man that I had much respect for. Prayers for y’all and your family.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. May all of you find comfort and peace in the days ahead.
I am so sorry for your loss. Death can seem so unfair when it takes someone so precious. The Bible says that life will not always be this way. This enemy that causes so much pain, death, will be wiped away and you will be able to hold your precious Mr Davis again! He will no longer be sick or in pain when he wakes up. This is a promise from God!

Marilyn, Robin and Matt. So sorry to hear about Jack’s passing. He was very special and I enjoyed the many years that we lived across the street from each other. I got to see him several times along the streams of N. Arkansas and S. Missouri and picked up many fishing tips along the way. God bless you during this time. We will be praying for your family
I am so very sorry for the loss of your father, what a great man he was. I want to let you know your dad was responsible for sharing the gospel and bringing my dad to Christ. I wish I had been able to thank him personally, but will forever be eternally grateful to him. I know he will have many many rewards in heaven. I am praying for comfort and peace for you all

My condolences to you Matt Davis and your family. He was a great man and loved by all who knew him. May he rest in peace in our Lord’s arms.
What a loss for all of us. I’ve missed seeing you both in the pew in front of mine, and will continue to greatly miss each and every hug. I so hope you are getting better, Marilyn, and will soon be able to rejoin us here in Mountain Home. May God surround you with His great arms of comfort.
We have lost the last cousin that was in WW 11.like the ones before, Rest In Peace.
Mr. Davis always made me laugh. He was so much like my dad: very kind and devoted to his family.
