    Such a good soul was taken way to soon. I am glad I had the chance to work with David at Cargill. Lynell and family, I wish you comfort in knowing David is still watching over all of you.

    Lynell and family…..although you didn’t really get to know me, I did have the pleasure of knowing David as part of the Cargill team in Elk River. My retirement in 1999 took me away from all the “farm activity” but even having known David for just awhile did give me the opportunity to know a caring person. At his young age we know he left us all too soon but I’m sure God has a very special place for him and he and God are now looking down on you and your family and will continue to keep all of you in his care. You have my sympathy. Take care and God Bless!
