Condolence & Memory Journal

My deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Mr. Ballenger. I miss seeing him take walks with his cat, and just relaxing in the front yard. I will remember him as a kind man with a kind spirit. More importantly, I have no doubt that he is in God's memory.

We will miss David and the laughter he shared with us. He always had a story or a memory to tell us about. And he always wanted to know about the kids or Peg and what they were all doing. We know he struggled health wise these past few years but are so glad that we were able to visit him. Our prayers and thoughts will be with you all during this week and in the weeks to come.
