|Jehovah is my Shepherd, I shall not want. 耶 和 華 是 我 的 牧 者 ， 我 必 不 致 缺 乏|
This website was created to remember our dad, husband and brother in Christ, David Huang, who went to be with his Shepherd after living a full long life. His example encouraged us to live Christ, and we remember him for a life of kindness and generosity.
"I first got to know David and Sue after serving together with Sue at the bookstore in Chicago; that would have been about 15 years ago. After that, I visited them a number of times at their home, since I lived fairly close by; those times were always very refreshing and enjoyable. It was so encouraging to be with such a sweet older couple, just living a very simple life in the Lord's presence. And of course, their history with the recovery was quite special; saints like that are so rare among us now! They are a real support to the church and the saints. David and Sue certainly have been, and it was a real blessing to be with them.
The one particular memory I have of David is that Sue at one point mentioned he loved peanut butter, but the kind that's not so healthy, with a lot of added ingredients. I wanted to see if I could encourage him to eat the all-natural kind, "just peanuts," but the problem with that is you have to stir it; not so easy if you're a bit older. So, I got a jar, stirred it up, and brought it over for him. I don't know if that helped or not!
It's never easy to lose a loved one, even when they lived such a long and full life as David did. May the Lord's comfort be with you all in this loss."
"For over forty years David and Sue have graced the church and faithfully ministered life as pillars in the church. David's going to the Lord is a loss to us physically and he is missed. He was the epitome of Romans 12. The example of a faithful saint in function blending into the Body in appropriate measure according to Christ.
His care and portion in shepherding many, lives on as an example to us all, to the Glory of Christ. We along with his family miss his presence, but are thankful to the Lord for David's long life with us."
