Thank You Letter from the Forsberg Family
Wednesday, September 11, 2013 • Posted September 13, 2013

Dear Family and Friends,

In reality, words cannot express our deepest thanks to each and every one of you who've been here for our entire family during this time of great loss due to our dearest David Daniel Forsberg's graduation to eternal life on August 11, 2013! And though we have peace and know that he's extremely happy and totally fulfilled, it is we who are left here on earth for a while longer that have to continue our journey to it's completion, looking forward to that day when we will all be reunited forever with him!

Since there are literally hundreds of individuals that we would like to write to personally, we have opted to share a little bit with you via this note to thank you for your love and support; physical, emotional, spiritual and even financial. It is you who make it possible for all of us to continue on and to gradually adjust to our "new normal", so to speak. Without you in our lives, this journey would be even more difficult and seeing, experiencing and feeling God's unconditional Love through all of you has been a wonderful, joyous and inspirational event in our lives. It's interesting how a death can make our life so much more meaningful. It brings to mind the verse in the Bible"I Cor: 15:54 & 55...Death is swallowed up in victory. Oh death, where is they sting? Oh grave, where is thy victory?" Our dearest David Daniel "Bake" was such a light and inspiration to all of us and seeing how he allowed himself to be a beacon of God's unconditional love to thousands, is something that we cherish and hold on to.

Now, to be a little more specific in our thanks; We really live in the best little town in Texas...Blanco. There is no other place we'd rather be than right here where true friendship and christianity has been manifested so greatly!!God's law is the golden rule, "do unto others as you would have others do unto you" and we have experienced it via literally scores of individuals in our community. The Boozefighters Motorcycle Club, our family from Riverside Bar and Grill, even our Blanco Public School personnel, not to mention our neighbors all around. We thank you all for your love first of all, but we need to mention how delicious all the food was and is!! The pork roast, the briskets, the hams, the spagetti, the lasagna, the gumbo, the peach cobbler, the barbacue chicken, the variety of drinks and snacks....Also all the paper goods which made life so much easier in the first weeks. Your practicality and intuitive gifts of food and supplies were and are overwhelming! We were able to host sometimes 50 people a day as they came to our property to support us and there was plenty of food to go around! Thank you all, so, so, so much! Again, all of this special time together with loved ones and extended family was made easier because of you, our loved ones and extended family!!

Much Love and Prayers Always,

Nikki, Noah and Jonah Forsberg

Mom and Dad (Dave and Lani) Forsberg

And the Forsberg and Irwin Families
