One Condolence for Harry W. Davidson

  • Yo the Davidson Family:
    I wish to offer you my sincerest condolences over the loss of Mr Davidson. I only knew him briefly as a patient during his two times at Churchman Village as one of his therapists. I must say he was in amazing shape for his age! He was remarkable, and had lovely stories to share. It was also such a sweet thing to see him and his wife Doris together there as well. Please take comfort in your cherished memories and in the “God of all comfort” who provides us with peace during our times of grief. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4
