Thank you for the story. So sorry to hear of Dave’s current situation. Will be praying for him because only God can bring peace to the torment he’s in.
Hat’s off to his family, especially Glenn.

I work in a CA state prison. I stumbled onto Dave’s Bread finding it to be the first wheat bread I liked. I was concerned about the “killer” part of the name, once I noticed it.

Glory to God that Dave has been introduced to the loving God of second chances. Dave, cling the the strong tower! May our Heavenly Father’s Shalom be upon Dave, his family and their business. Numbers 6: 24-26

Having had a sister who struggled with drugs from her late teens until approximately 3 years before her death, I witnessed the rollercoaster of in and out of rehabs, struggles with kicking her addiction and the physical effects. From sharing needles she contracted HIV and Hepatitis. She died at age 45. She had three sons who suffered too and she was in the process of rebuilding her relationship with them when she died. It was hard on our parents (dad fought in WWII) and as our dad was in poor health he died less then two months later. I struggled… Read more »
