ForeverMissed

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, David Mundt, 78, born on August 28, 1933 and passed away on November 23, 2011. We will remember him forever.

 

From Marie to David

In memory of my Partner and the love of my life. We had fifty-eight and a half wonderful years together.

He was the perfect example of a devoted family man. He loved his family; a loving husband, a proud parent and he adored his three grandkids. He loved taking care of his family. He was our protector; always just a phone call away.

Our family circle has been broken. His passing has left us so sad and lonely but his presence will always remain with us through his loving and caring spirit. He will always remain in my heart.

Thank you for a lifetime of memories. One day we will be together again.

I love you Dad and you will be forever missed. Your loving wife, Marie

 

 

In Celebration of the Life of David H. Mundt

In the bulb there is a flower,

In the seed, an apple tree,

In cocoons a hidden promise:

Butterflies will soon be free

In the cold and snow of winter

There's a spring that waits to be,

Unrevealed until its season,

Something God alone can see.

There's a song in every silence,

Seeking word and melody,

There's a dawn in every darkness,

Bringing hope to you and me.

From the past will come the future,

What it holds a mystery,

Unrevealed until its season

Something God alone can see.

In our end is our beginning,

In our time, infinity,

In our doubt there is believing,

In our life, eternity,

In our death a resurrection,

at the last a victory,

Unrevealed until its season,

Something God alone can see.

 

 

For Dad, Mom and Bubba

Thank you Terri!

Happy Birthday Dad. Another year has gone by. I can honestly say, you would not have liked this year. 2020 has been a nightmare for a lot of people and a very ugly year in so many ways. I am thankful that you are at peace right now. I miss you. I always miss you. Love, Tracey

Happy Father's Day Dad. Time keeps sneaking up on me this year, it has been a very busy one. I still think of you all the time. I cannot tell you how much I miss our morning talks. Time does make some of the pain fade but it does not make the good memories fade. We will always have them and be able to share them. Thank you for being a great dad.  I love you and miss you always. Tracey

Uncle David I just need to say you are missed & loved. Give Gayla my love too.
Posted by Marie Mundt on November 23, 2019
Eight years ago today, you left us. Some say it doesn’t seem that much time has passed, for me it’s a life time ago. My memory of you has not faded. I still remember our beginning and the end as we watched your quality of life slip away. Then I prayed for you to have a peaceful crossing. I believe you did. Sending loving thoughts today to my partner of 58 ½ years. Rest peacefully David. You are forever missed, loved and never forgotten. Marie

Well Dad it’s that time of year. I miss you and I think about you all the time. To many people’s surprise, we lost your sister, Carley, on October 14th of this year. She was the youngest of the bunch but sometimes that’s how it goes. If there wasn’t a party going on before, I imagine there is one now! Think of us and we’ll think of you. I choose to remember the good times and there were many of those. I love you Dad. Tracey

Uncle David you are still very much loved & missed. I hope you are having a heck of a birthday with all of our loved ones.

Sending Birthday wishes to my partner of 58 1/2 years. Even though we are apart, you are still with me in so many different ways. I am blessed with so many memories. I love you and miss you. Rest peacefully. I will never forget you. Marie

Happy Birthday Dad. You would have been 86 years old today. Not too many changes have happened this year. It's still way too hot and I still miss you very much. I imagine I always will. Love you Dad.
Posted by Tracey Scarpulla on June 16, 2019
Happy Father's Day Dad. I want to thank you for teaching me so many things. You didn't say so much as you taught by your actions and your own strength. Thank you for teaching the value of hard work and the ability when things are at their worst and you hurt all over to keep going...put one foot in front of the other and just keep going. Love you Dad.
Posted by Terri Carlson on November 23, 2018
Uncle David just wanted you to know we are thinking about you and we truly missed you and love you. We have such great memories of you and we thank you for that.

Another year, today is number seven. Had so much fun with kids and grandkids yesterday sharing our stories of you. Your spirit is still very strong among us. Still miss you and love you. Rest peacefully. 2018
Posted by Tracey Scarpulla on November 23, 2018
Well Dad, it's been seven years ago since you passed. I wish you could have been here yesterday. Thanksgiving was great. You have four beautiful great-grandchildren. All of them full of life! They all would have congregated by your side as usual! It would truly have been a day you enjoyed and were thankful to be there! I love you Dad and still miss you every day. Tracey
Posted by Marie Mundt on August 28, 2018
Another year, still miss you as always. I know you are in great company. Rest peacefully knowing you are missed by many and never forgotten. Love you then, love you now. Marie 2018

Happy Birthday Uncle David. I feel so honored to be sharing mine and Don's wedding anniversary on this day. I sure do miss you & at times I feel like I can smell that tobacco aroma from your pipe. Thank you for being honestly my favorite Uncle & giving us such wonderful memories to cherish. Love you!
Posted by Tracey Scarpulla on August 28, 2018
Happy Birthday Dad. The years keep adding up since you passed. I miss you all the time. I miss our talks and I simply miss being around you. There was a kinship between us that cannot be duplicated or found anywhere else. I love you and I'm sure you will be remembered by many people today. All my love, Tracey.
Posted by Tracey Scarpulla on June 17, 2018
Happy Father's Day, Dad. You were always there day in and day out for me and everyone else who knew you. You will always be a special person but especially a special dad in my heart. You were not perfect, but you were the best father I could have asked for. Thank you for being you. I love you and miss you every day. Tracey

David, still miss you after all these years. Six years ago today we had to accept it was time to let you go. It was not about us, but about you. I know you are okay. Rest peacefully knowing you are missed and loved by many. You will never be forgotten. Love you, Marie
Posted by Tracey Scarpulla on November 23, 2017
Dad, these years without you keep coming and adding up. Like it or not that is life. People still talk about you and how much they miss you, me included. We tell stories and laugh about the memories that were always centered around you. That is how I will always choose to remember you; strong, kind, always helpful and always with your pipe! I love you Dad, Tracey

Dear Marie, Duane and Tracey. How appropriate that on this day of Thanksgiving we are giving thanks for the life of David!!! His life was a blessing to all of you and countless others. As was Boyd's. I always think of them together....how our lives twined. Think of you often, friend. Love, Nora Mae.
Posted by Terri Carlson on November 22, 2017
I can't believe it is going on 6 years since you left us. You are missed and loved more than words can say. I miss smelling that smell of your tobacco and that smile that lit up the room. Thank you for making it so easy to love you and giving me memories I will always cherish. Give the family my love.
Posted by Terri Carlson on August 28, 2017
Happy Birthday in heaven! You are thought about so often & missed. You may never know but you were (are)my favorite Uncle and I hold those precious memories. I love you & look forward to seeing you again.

Happy Birthday Dad. I still think of you in some little way every day. The memories you gave to me will always be there. Those memories are the gifts you gave to me and everyone while you were here and will always be cherished. Like everyone you knew, when I think of you, it always brings a smile to my face. Love you Dad.

A Father means so many things...
An understanding heart,
A source of strength and support
right from the very start.
A constant readiness to help
In a kind and thoughtful way.
With encouragement and forgiveness,
No matter what comes your way.
A special generosity and always affection, too.
A father means so many things
when he is a man like you....

Happy Father's Day Dad. I miss you everyday.
With Love, Tracey

Well Dad, it has been five years to the day since your time here ended. Some days it still seems like just yesterday that we lost you and some days it seems like a whole different lifetime ago. The holidays are here and in many ways I am glad that you have already passed on. We had such great times year after year! Those times were true blessings and I am thankful for all those memories! Love you, miss you. Tracey
Posted by Marie Mundt on November 23, 2016
Nov. 23, 2016. Five years have passed since your battle with cancer ended. Seems so long ago, yet some things I recall as though it was yesterday. Still miss you and I'll always love you. Loving thoughts coming your way. Rest Peaceful. Love, Marie

Uncle David,
It just doesn't seem like five years that you left us. As hard as it was to give you up I'm thankful you are pain free and at peace. I'm so thankful for having you into life as long as I did. You were a great man that was truly loved and missed by all of us. Love you.
Posted by Nora Odom on August 28, 2016
Dear Marie, thinking about you, David and the kids today. It does not seem like five years in one way and forever in another. Boyd would have been 83 last November. David was such a gentle man...you all were blessed. Take care of yourself. Love you, Nora Mae.
Posted by Terri Carlson on August 28, 2016
Happy Birthday Uncle David. You are missed and loved. Thanks for the great memories. Party down with daddy & mom and the others there with you.

David, August 28th. Another year, another birthday without you. You are still very much alive in our thoughts and memories you left behind. I believe you already received your biggest gift, no more struggle with your disease and no more pain. That belief is a comforting thought. Happy Birthday wishes on your special day. I will be thinking of you and your memories that have never faded. I miss you and love you always. Rest Peacefully David. 2016.
Posted by Tracey Scarpulla on August 28, 2016
Happy Birthday Dad. Sometimes I cannot believe how long it has been since you passed away. Days to month, months to years but you are thought of daily. In some small thought or memory you are here every day. I miss you dearly. Love you, Tracey

We miss you!

Well Dad, today is another birthday for you. Life is so different with you not here. I always knew how much you were loved, but I didn't know the impact you had on so many lives. The small daily differences you made. Now I know. So today we celebrate your life and there is much to celebrate. Happy Birthday Dad. Love you and miss you more each day. Tracey

So many good memories over these long years of a good, gentle man, always smiling, completely devoted to his family. I remember the young man in Germany so in love with his Marie. Thank GOD for His promise that His children will be reunited for all eternity! We are looking forward to that, Marie. Love you.

Welcome to Texas

Shared by David Richey on August 28, 2014

I remember my 1st trip to Texas driving my car out before I relocated here and all I knew was I was excited to get here. After making the drive ( only sleeping for 2 hrs) on a half way cross the country trip I ended up in Buda when I stayed with Aunt Marie & Uncle David's house for the night. I remember this night very well..... Dinner with them, stories about the family, Scott working at the Pizza place until late, nascar , but I still remember listening to Uncle David ask Marie to go for there nightly walk through the neighborhood. Seems minor then, but this was there routine and it was there thing... I remember so many other stories from back then but a simple 1st night in Texas will always stand out with me.

Our Anniversary - May 6, 2013

Shared by Marie Mundt on May 6, 2013

Dear David,

Today, May 6th, is our day - 60 years. I'm thankful we had 58 1/2 years before you had to go. They were filled with love and happiness. This year we will welcome our first great-granchild, a girl, for Joel and Valerie. In my heart I know you are okay. Your spirit remains as strong as ever. I miss you and will love you forever.
Marie


"You can shed tears that he is gone/or
you can smile because he has lived.

You can close your eyes and pray
that he'll come back/or you can open
your eyes and see all he's left.

Your heart can be empty, because you
can't see him/or you can be full of the
love you shared.

You can turn your back on tomorrow
and live yesterday/or you can be
happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.

You can remember him and only
that he's gone/or you can cherish his
memory and let it live on.

You can cry and close your mind, be
empty and turn your back/or you can
do what he'd want: smile, open your
eyes, love and go on."

Remembering You One year Later

Shared by Marie Mundt on November 23, 2012

You left us one year ago today, November 23rd.  Some say it doesn't seem possible you have been gone that long.  To me, it seems like forever.  We watched those last few weeks as your body grew weaker and all quality of life slipped away.  It was so hard, but we knew it was time to say our goodbyes and let you go. 
You left us with some remarkable memories.  I have made progress moving forward by going back in time and remembering the beginning of our life together as well as the end.  We speak of you almost daily; always with loving thoughts.  Some memories bring tears and some bring smiles.  You will never be forgotten.  You will always remain in my heart.  I still miss you and will always love you. 
Your partner in life, Marie
