Dear Annie and Fran:

I am so very sorry to learn of the passing of your father and your husband. Although I didn't know him very well - he and my "Army Dad" had a lot in common--even the love of coins ;)

May God give you strength and comfort at this very difficult time.

You are in my prayers.

With Love,

Anita & Virginia

Our Sympathy to the Family of Michael Davis,
We really liked your Father. He was honest, loving and caring and had a great personality.
We had our House and Car insurance with him for very many years.
He sat on our front porch one day and talked with my husband about things in general and my husband really enjoyed talking with him that day. He was very friendly and gentle.
He will be missed by many people......
May God be with you all in this time of sorrow. Gene & Carol Daugherty
