    Dear Corlann and Jaren

    My family and I offer our sincere and heartfelt condolences to you both and to your family.. David (we called him Donut) was a very special friend who loved life, his family and friends and above all He really loved the Lord Jesus. Through his singing ministry he touched and impacted many people, both young and old and across the spectrum of nationalities and racial distinctions.. This was a testimony that he was no respecter of persons, and that his heart’s desire was that ALL people should hear the message of the Gospel..

    David was my friend, my ministry colleague and brother in Christ..Sadly we lost contact for many years, but God was gracious to re-connect us before David was promoted into His presence..

    His memory will remain etched in my heart and soul.. Corlann and Jaren, may you find comfort in the knowledge that this wonderful man, a husband and best friend to you Corlann and a doting father to you Jaren, now rests in the company of the saints who have gone before, in the presence of Christ Jesus.. May you experience the closeness and comfort of Holy Spirit who has been given to us to comfort us and may the support and love of your friends and family be the physical expression of God’s loving care for YOU.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I called David ‘Barnabas’ because he was such an encourager, one who spurred you on to a goal or to achieve your dreams. We loved his voice and passion to praise God. He touched many lives with love and compassion. May God comfort you in this difficult time. God Bless. Barb and Lee

    Corlann and Jaren, Lorna & I would like to send our condolences and assure of our prayers at this difficult time. Our prayers also go to the Lord to Reimers. David always was a caring and loving person to whom God gave a powerful voice to sing His praises. I am sure he is singing with the angels around the throne of God. He was and is a special person who we look forward to seeing at the coming of our Lord and the resurrection of all those who loved His appearing.

  9. My deepest condolences to David’s wife, son and family.

    Through Youth for Christ, I spent six months travelling around Zimbabwe ministering in music with David. He always had a smile on this face, and his happy disposition always kept morale up in the team. He always had a positive attitude to life and that’s what I remember most about him.

    I pray God brings comfort and peace to the family and those close to him at this time.
