When It's All Been Said And Done

When it's all been said and done
There is just one thing that matters;
Did I do my best to live for truth
Did I live my life for You.
When it's all been said and done
All my treasures will be nothing
Only what I've done for Love's reward
Will stand the test of time.
Lord, your mercy is so great
That you look beyond our weakness
And find purest gold in miry clay
Making sinners into saints
I will always sing your praise
Here on earth and ever after
For You've shown me Heaven's my True home
When it's all been said and done
You're my life when life is gone.
When it's all been said and done
There is just one thing thing that matters
Did I do my best to live for Truth
Did I live my life for You.
Lord, I'll live my life for you.

Your family is in our thoughts and prayers, especially during this holiday season. We shall miss Dave's annual Christmas letter! Grateful for the impact he and Janet have had in our lives. He's now dancing with the Lord in heaven.

Dave is a member of the Lowell School alumni of the 1950's and always will be. I was privileged to know him back in those years when we were in class together as well as during our high school years in Wheaton. I enjoyed spending some time with him during our 40th class reunion. He contributed much to each of our lives- we who knew him. I was touched with his courage and candor in him email message earlier this year.
Our prayers remain with his family.

Dave is my Uncle by marriage to my Mom's younger sister, Janet. I met him when I was 7, Jan was living with us and Dave dated her. We loved him from the moment we met him. Even as a 17 year old, Dave was breath of fresh air that filled the room. He took up a lot of space by being a loving personality with a great gift of connecting easily with almost anyone.
And when I was 10, my sister and I were flower girls at their wedding. I have photos on my wall of that wedding.
Dave and Jan have always been a loving, important and inspirational part of my life. Over the years they moved to the East Coast and we saw them less, but their place in our hearts was always huge and never changed.
Dave was always there for everyone. Until he got cancer, I would call him for advice and direction. He never failed to e insightful, loving, wise and funny.
He always had a good book or family movie for us to see and he wrote great reviews.
For me, Dave is a spiritual rock and role model, along with Jan. He matured in the Lord over the years and was an awesome husband, father, grandfather to his family and Uncle to me.
When my father was sick with cancer, it was Dave and Jan who drove to AZ from FL to be there for him and my Mom. They were always the people to count on, who were there without asking and gave unconditional love.
Dave, Jan, Steve, Jeff and their families are my family - and I am blessed to be part of this family.
I will miss Dave the rest of my life. I still can't comprehend the roller coaster ride of the last year with his cancer - I was sure our prayers would bring healing. I was awed at the way his faith never waivered, in fact it grew deeper. How hard he fought - especially to be there for Janet. They are two people who were truly meant to be together.
Dave continued to inspire people with his trust in God. I've had many messages from people I asked to pray for him - who never met him - each telling me how blessed they were to read his emails and how he deeply impacted their faith and walk with God.
I grieve his passing for his family and friends and at the same time, rejoice to know he is in the arms of Jesus Christ - the Lord he loved and served his entire life.
When I first heard he had cancer, I made him a mix CD of Christian songs that I love and felt he would find peace listening to. And he did. He reminded me of how he was listening to it during chemo. One of the songs was "I Can Only Imagine" by Mercy Me. When I think of Dave, I see him in that song, dancing for Jesus. And I know he will be there to show us around heaven as soon as we arrive - taking care of all of us - just as he did on earth.

Dear-to-me Pardonner Family, it's been a blessing to know you as a family of great faith. That was so evident in all of Dave's correspondence, especially through the last long battle. But we know he's gone ahead in triumph because of his faith in Jesus. May you, and all of us who have been left behind, know the consolation of the Comforter.

For Janet and all the Pardonner Family, my love and prayers to you at this time of loss and sorrow but also I know of your faith and trust in the promises of God. Dave,like my husband Bob, is now rejoicing in heaven with His Savior and His Saints. I am grateful for the many memories we shared over the years. We shared in the joyful partnership in the Gospel at St. Paul's and then kept in touch . The last time I saw Dave and Jan was in early April here in Jacksonville, the day he had received a very serious diagnosis. We prayed together and hugged. Now Dave is "lost in wonder, love and praise." These are the final lines of the great Charles Wesley hymn,"Love divine, All Loves Excelling .
