Dear Marilyn and family,
I was shocked to hear of David's passing. Terry & I were in Lamar today and I asked if we had time to run by & see you, both. Terry said he thought he had told me, as he heard it in passing from one of the farmers at home & with everything, he put it on a back burner, meaning to call you & never got back to it. David was such a sweet, wonderful man and we enjoyed him and doing business with him, over the years. We will miss him. We will keep you and the family in our prays for times to come, as I know the pain of loss, sticks with us for a long time and never completely goes away. God bless you, and if there is anything we can do, please don't hesitate to call us.
In Christ's love,
Charlotte & Terry Sherman
To David's family: My deepest condolences for your loss. David, to me, will always be the elder cousin, the king of the cousins, as it were...I remember him as very intelligent, enjoying and creating humor during family interactions. All my best go out to you at this time.
Best, Kathy Fuller
I was so sad to hear about David and I want you to know you and your family are in
my prayers. May God give you peace through this time.
We are so sorry to hear about the loss of David. We look back on so many great memories we have of our ball team and we well remember all the paint ball skirmishes between Steven and David. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

David Heck: Linda and Family, I was saddened to hear of David's passing. I know how hard it is to lose someone you love so much. My thoughts and prayers are with you and I pray your memories will keep you in the weeks to come.
Do you suppose he and Roland have met up and are catching up on things? God bless and keep you.

To the Dave Heck family:
I have known Dave for over sixty years. In elementary school he was David Anderson before his mother married Ed Heck and he became David Heck (I don't recall calling him Dave until high school). Life must have been difficult being raised as an only child by a single parent but you would never know it by talking to Dave. He was always positive and optimistic - I guess those are the qualities of a dry land wheat farmer and a good one he was. He started with nothing and amassed quite a spread and shared his knowledge in his work with the Wheat Growers Association where he served as president for a period of time.
My thoughts take me back to high school where Dave was the wrestler, and then on to college where we enjoyed occasional woodies, and finally in his adult life where we exchanged our annual Christmas cards in which he expressed his love for Linda and his three boys of whom he was so proud. He will be missed.
To Linda, David, Patrick, Stephen and grandchildren, Ilga and I grieve with you. Dave will be missed and we send our sincere sympathy to each of you.
To the David Heck family: You have our deepest sympathy for your loss! David was more like a brother to me than a nephew. Although we will be unable to attend the memorial service, you may be assured our thoughts and prayers wiil be there! We will remember Dave as we saw him at the recent family reunion. LINDA: You are a valued member of the Myers family! We love you!
