  • To the entire Clippinger Family,

    David was my very best childhood friend. We did everything together and was rarely apart from each other. Playing sports in our back yard, riding bikes, sled riding on Curtis Hill and building models up in his room. It was truly a great neighborhood of friends and wonderful memories.

    I will never forget the friendship that David and I shared in those early years.

    Know that we are sharing in your sorrow and lifting you up in prayer. May you feel God’s comfort and grace all around you.

    “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” – Romans 8:28

    God Bless,
    Jeff and Julie Pillow
