Rest In Peace Don (Dun)


Ecclesiastes 3:1-9

1.There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2. A time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3. A time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build,
4. A time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5. A. Time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
6. A time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7. A time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8. A time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.

Dun was a wise man direct and to the point, respectful of others, he will be missed. Prayers for his family.

Just getting around to seeing this thread :( . The weather, being busy, and my own family loss has me behind here on the forum. Hate seeing this news. Seems like death of people I respect and or care for are dropping like flies here lately. There definitely some new mansion owners in Heaven now. Didn't know Dun personally but always read his posts and looked forward to his replies. He was among one of the users here I respected the most :tiphat: . RIP Dun and God Bless the Family to keep going on.

I found this on Friday. How do I respond? This place just won't be the same without Dun. We were blessed to have him here as long as we did. Go bless his family in this tragic loss.
Our ancestors gave us this. They fought to make it what it is. All we have to do is defend it.

Bad news. Sorry for his family. He is at peace. He was one of the guys here that was always respectful and had advice to offer. For that I was thankful. That glimpse into his character showed a decent man.

Really hate to see this. Dun was knowledgeable and kind enough to share what he knew in a way that wasn't condescending but helpful. Just a good ol' guy, who I'm certainly going to miss.

I had a friend (gone now) who could walk into a room full of Governors or a room full of garbage men and by the end of the night every one of them would think he was their new best friend. Dun struck me the same way and I mean that as a 100% compliment.

I pray his wife and family will find comfort in their many fond memories of him.

I don't guess we ever got along that good. But that doesn't mean I don't have the greatest respect for you Dun. I will definitely miss your wisdom and I want you to know I learned a great deal from you. Thanks for everything you did.
