I am the redhead at Young’s Cafeteria and looked forward to seeing “Pap” and his family members every Monday. What an absolutely wonderful and kind man he was and it would show with all family he would bring with him. We will miss him very much. I’m sorry I was out of town when the showing was held. Please accept my condolences and I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. God surely blessed your family with his long life. May God be with you.

We send our sincere sympathy to your family on your loss of such a wonderful man. It was our honor and privilege to get to know Grandpa Davis over these last years. I will always remember Chris & Melissa talking about the pies he would make for the family. The last time we saw him was at Matthew’s 2nd Birthday party. He and my mother, Frances, were sitting together having a great time eating and talking. That is a memory I will always have. He had a wonderful life full of great family memories and a family that dearly loved him.

Sincerely, Doug & Susan Sarkis
