    Heartfealt condolences to Myrtle and family from the Steier Family. Have many fond memories of Dave and Myrtle,Bob, Wes and Rita while working at the grocery store in Prelate. Thoughts and prayers going out to the Neufeld family today. Will always remember Davefor his big heart and for his inability to say no to all the Farmers who wanted to go for coffee while their wives grocery shopped. Dave obliged everyone of them, and sometimes that amounted to 15-20 cups of coffee a day. RIP my friend.

    Myrtle, Bob, Wes and Rita,
    So sorry to hear of Dave’s passing. My first memory of our time with your family was when we picked up our new car from Dave in Leader. I would have been about four years old. Your family’s friendship over the years was special. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
