    I was so sorry to hear about the Sarasin family’s loss. David’s son Dan was a good friend to my daughter and very kind to her when our son died. Our hearts and prayer are with the family now.

    Dear Dave,

    I hope you can read your E-mail in heaven for if you can you find out just how much you were loved and will be missed by so many. I know you will be watching over your family from above as you did when you were here. No one I know of has any doubt that you are in heaven as in life you were such a shining light to everyone who knew you. Phrases such as “he always had a smile for all”, or ” he was always willing to lend a hand” are heard in any conversation about you. The worst of it was that we, nor you, had the chance to say good-bye, but you lived the very life I try to tell my Grand-daughters to live. That is to treat people in the very best way you can because you never know when the last time you will see them will be. You were loved, looked up to and envied for just being you. As you know your entire family misses you so very much and yet can take comfort in knowing that when it’s time for God to call them home, you will be there to greet them with the smile we all come to know so well.

    So I say good-bye to you now and please know that I to will miss you.

    Dear Paula, Dan, Andrea, Eric & Family,

    My heart goes out to you and the prayers are never ending. Paula, you and Dave were both so wonderful when we move to Watson. Wonderful neighbors and friends! You were all there for us – Dan was still in high school & always ready to lend a hand. Andrea and Eric helped my children to adjust to a new school & new friends.

    We have thought of you often over the years – you just can not forget Good Friends. I send Hugs and Love and again unending Prayers. My God be with you all.

    My deepest sympathy to Davey’s family. Though I did not know him well, there was not a time that he didn’t have a smile and hello. It is certainly a tragedy to lose someone you love at such a young age. Please know that I have your family in my thoughts at this difficult time. May God and all those around you help you through your loss.

    Dear Sarasin Family–

    I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Brother Sarasin. As Jessica said above, I will always remember how he greeted us every Sunday morning for church. He had such a good, shining, noble soul. I know he will be greatly missed and I will never forget the day of his “surprise” baptism. He was a special man, and I know that you can look forward to seeing him again in the eternities. Your family is in our prayers. We love you.

    Dave will very much be missed not only was he my uncle but a very good friend. He was also like a big brother. He was always there to lend a helping hand when needed. Dave was always happy and smiling, he was a great person to be around. I will miss going to his house for dinner or just to visit.

    Grandpa now has Dave in heaven with him to keep him company.

    Dear Sarasin family-

    I am so sorry for your loss. Brother Sarasin was always so kind to me. He always seemed to be holding open the door for me at church or laughing with me in the hallway. Dinners at your home were so much fun. It was a treat just to hear him laugh. I remember going camping with your family and mine and how I just wanted to sit around the campfire with the adults to chat. He really made every conversation lively and fun and every person at ease. I offer nothing but the deepest sympathy to you all. I’ll continue in my prayers for you. Know that you have my love.

    Uncle Dave was definately here for a reason. He has shown everyone he’s known how much he cared for people. It pleased him to see others happy. Dave always made you feel welcome. He dearly loved Paula,his children, gradchildren, and family. He will be missed–from his laugh, to his warm and gentle eyes, to his gentle,caring heart. His time with us was great and memorable. I will dearly miss him-forever.

    David Sarasin was a man after God’s own heart. I once told him and his daughter that I considered him to be “God’s gift to me” after he made many improvements on our property just because he liked working outside in the yard, he said. More than that,Dave went out of his way as our neighbor to meet us and befriend us. We will miss him more than words can say.

He would always go swimming with me no matter how cold the water was.I remember him coming to my baseball games to cheer me on. I know he is in Heaven playing cribbage with my Grandpa. I Love Uncle Dave and I will miss him. Love, Lorenzo

    Jeff and I will never forget all of the wonderful camping memories with Dave & Paula and their children. Dave was always the first one up in the morning with the great big cast iron frying pan out over the campfire to make all of us breakfast. He was always smiling and had a heart of gold. He was willing to help everyone, whether you were family or just an aquaintance. He loved coming to our boys basketball, baseball and football games and that really meant a lot to us. Dave will be very much missed by all who loved him and knew him. We are praying for Paula and the family that God gives them the strength to deal with their loss and also to know that he is in a better place with The Lord. Love Always, Jeff, Lynn & Kids
