  1. I only met Mr. Hyde once or twice, but if his son is any reflection of his character, then he must’ve been a man of kindness, honor, and integrity. Prayers for comfort, peace, and healing. I wish I could attend the service, but it will no doubt be a lovely one. May God be glorified!

  2. Please accept our deepest condolences. We will certainly continue praying for you and your entire family during this difficult time.

    May God be with all of you.

  3. We send our deepest sympathy to all of David’s family. He was such a kind, sweet Christian man and such a joy to be around. We feel very blessed to call him our friend , it made your happy just to see his smile. May God bless all of you!
