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

Well Dad, on this day 11 years ago, we had to let you go. I remember being torn between what I wanted and what was best for you to end your suffering. I was relieved that you did pass away peacefully. It's very odd how some memories stick so clearly in your mind no matter how much time has gone by. I still miss you every day. I love you and remember you often.

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I am grateful to the people that are still with us. I believe it is a time to be thankful for what we have, and I am thankful for all the people we have in our lives and of the wonderful memories you left me.
Love you, Tracey

Happy Birthday Dad. Another year has passed. I think of you quite often and all of the things that I miss about you not being here. Just remember how loved you always were and always will be. You were always the solid figure in my life and the one everyone could count on. Your shoes are hard to fill! 
Love you and still miss you, Tracey

Happy Father's Day, Dad. Especially on days like today, I cannot tell you how much I miss your presence. You were always the glue that held everything to a patient calm. I miss that. I miss how you took so many things in stride and kept your strength. I think of you often and the time we had together. It was the best. Love you always, Tracey

Well Dad, it's been 10 years since you passed and Scott and I were just talking a few days ago about how each of us still miss you so much. I think that's the way it will always be. You are still thought of frequently and with lots of love.
It's been a rough 2021. It has been the hardest year since your passing. So many things have happened but first and foremost was that Joel died on August 30th and I don't think any of us have come to terms with that yet. My heart breaks for so many people. Watch over everyone Dad. We could all use that little something special that you gave without even thinking about it. I love and miss you, Tracey

Happy Birthday Dad. Although the years seem to go slowly sometimes, they are flying by. It has been an odd year. I guess I was hoping 2021 would be a whole lot better than 2020. It's not really working out that way but we're getting by. I miss you Dad. I see someone doing something and I'll think that looks like something Dad would do. I simply miss having you around the table talking. That simple ritual was so important to me.  It meant a lot and it still does. Love you Dad.

Happy Father's Day Dad. The years just keep adding up. I think of you often. Scott and I remember things and conversations and have a good chuckle most of the time. You made an impression on most people you met. You certainly helped shape the person that I became. I love you and miss you, Tracey

Another year has passed & my memory of you has not faded. Our family still feels your loss but left us with a lifetime of great memories. Still miss you so much but you are still with me in so many ways. Thank you for all those years we shared and great life we had. Still my loving partner, loved you then, love you now, Marie

Uncle David another year has passed & yet it just doesn’t seem possible. I know you are in a better place but still missed by so many of us and loved even more. Again, thank you for the great memories & the extra special spot in my heart. I thank God for giving me you & Aunt Marie.

Well Dad it's been 9 years. In some ways, your passing hasn't gotten any easier at all. I still miss those morning talks. I never knew how much I was going to miss them. In a few days, I'll see your great-grandchildren. You would have had a blast and we all know that children always gravitated to you. I wish you could have met them. I wish a lot of things but we all have to be grateful for what we do have. I love you Dad and I miss you.

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

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

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.

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

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

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.

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

Welcome to Texas

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

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

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
