My Story

David had a passion for "life". He loved sports - specifically Basketball. He played one handed, due to the cancer his last year and played amazingly well. He loved to hunt and fish - he could outfish us all even "one handed". He had many friends - of all ages, who dearly loved him. He was strong in his faith and shared it openly. This was part of his last journal entry: "I’m very much like Paul in the Bible. Split between two things. Paul said something like this in the bible and I have thought it for a long while. “I would love to die and be with the Lord but through my pain and suffering others are coming to know God.” So I’m more useful alive in pain than dead and in paradise… And I’m now OK with that. Now that others are seeing God through me I’m content with living until He calls me home. I have fully given Him my life to do with it as He wants. If suffering or working hard is all I have to do, to bring others to God…I would do it Forever. Whatever His plan, I will accept it. My heart and feelings extend toward others much further than myself….I have much more to say now but I have to go Live life; Love life; Love God; Live forever. David Crider "
