RUSHVILLE — Dear Editor:

On Feb. 25, 2013, we lost our dear brother, Rick Chester Dungan. On April 7, 2013, we lost our precious mother, Juanita Dungan. On May 23, 2013, we lost our beloved brother and father, Timothy Allen Dungan.

Words cannot truly express our heartfelt and deep appreciation for the outpouring of love, kindness, prayers, flowers, food, gifts, cards, telephone messages and support from our family, neighbors, friends and business organization in the Dublin, Cambridge City and Rushville area and beyond.

First of all, we give praise and thanks to God for His sustaining love, comfort and grace during the most difficult and heartbreaking time of our lives.

To the Marshall & Erlewein Funeral Home in Dublin, to Chris Erlewein and his wonderful staff who made this time of deep sorrow and grief easier for us to endure. Chris went beyond his professional duties and opened his arms of love and emotional support for the family each time our need came. He and his staff have been a God-given blessing.

We thank the Ambassador Health Care Center in Centerville and the Flatrock River Lodge in Rushville for the many years of precious care of Rick Dungan, and for the four months of loving care of Juanita Dungan.

We also extend our warm thanks to Gospel Mission Church in Dublin for the use of their church for Juanita Dungan’s funeral. Also to those who provided the music at the funeral.

To the Rev. Daryl Bertram and family for their prayerful and loving support and messages of comfort and hope, we love you!

We also say a big thank you to Ben Davis Creek Christian Church and minister Howard Bullard for the uplifting prayers and enduring comfort, visits to the funeral home and church, and for coming into our lives to share scripture with us.

To the Dayton Ohio National Cemetery, the Chaplain, Honor Guard, pall bearers and anyone else who assisted us for the funeral of Tim Dungan, we say thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

What we have experienced in the past three months has been overwhelming, but it proves once again that God never fails even in the midst of grief and sorrow.

God bless all and everyone for everything you have done to assist us in any way. Thank you for sharing and caring for us. It has made our burdens easier to bear. You will never be forgotten.
