Dear Nyman Family,

I remember Mr. Nyman from working at L. L. Stearns for many years. My mother, a buyer as well, also worked there for at least as long as Mr. Nyman. She thought the world of him. He was a very kind man who always had a smile and thoughtful words for everyone. What a gentleman. I'd often run into him at Beiter's during his time there. I am so sorry for your loss of this special man.

God's peace be with you.

Pastor John & Joy Aderhold

Our deepest condolences to the family. I was blessed to have known David while employed at Stearns and Joy & I were blessed to have David help us acquire some of our first furniture. We were both blessed to know his children. I know we will see him again because we have the same FATHER and the promise of being family forever. Please know that you are all in our prayers.
