He was admired and loved by all!
kind / caring / wise / forthright.
the hearts of everyone he met.
He had many interests! He was
never happier then when teaching the TRUE WORD of The God of
Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Israel) to the entire world!
He was always
meditating... and in prayer... to our Heavenly
He was a loving genuine devoted husband and family
In a world where most people put their own rights
in the forefront; he thought only of his responsibilities and
duty to others.
He was a tireless worker,
lenient with others, ruthless with himself. High
moral standards. Always grateful for what you did
I remember his words of wisdom. I quote some. His
words were, "Make sure you have oil in your vessels as well as your
lamps!" Good advise for all of us, wouldn't
you agree? I most certainly do!
He Will Be Missed With Tender Sorrow!
The Good News!
God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no
more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain:
for the former things are passed away. Rev.21:1-4
Our beloved Elder: David B. Loughran will rest in complete peace
... till the resurrection of the dead at our
Saviour's return to earth!
- When this corruptible shall put on incorruption.
- And this mortal shall put on immortality.
- Then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written,
- Death is swallowed up in victory.
- O death, where is thy sting?
- O grave, where is thy victory?
"I wish to thank ALMIGHTY God for the life of David, whose work and love I was privileged to share for 45 years. In addition to his writings on God's Holy Word, few people realize that he wrote many poems and songs. I would like to share this poem which he wrote many years ago to let you have a glimpse of the soul of the man I love."

God is with me
Let me tell you something of my friend,
And as I do, perhaps all of you will recognise
The value of my prize.
For all my worldly wealth,
My physical and mental health,
In storm or weather fair
Depends upon His care.
I've learned each day, to choose the way,
To loose my fears,
And though troubles press,
With sore distress upon my soul,
I know somehow that He is with me NOW
And will be through the passing years.
Yes - HE IS WITH ME
Even though in thought I've often caught myself
So far away from Him-
And even though I sometimes join the race-
Away from his Amazing Grace,
I always turn around to find He's there,
Behind my fleeing foot,
To put His hand upon my heart
To draw me back
To live with Him - Apart.
HE IS WITH ME,
Especially when my other friends misunderstand
The methods that I use,
Or when they REFUSE to see
That He and I are friends,
Working silently to MAKE not BRAKE the strongholds of the Faith.
HE ''IS'' WITH ME.
Way back in the past
Or WILL be in some future day - still far away
Yes. HE IS WITH ME - NOW.
This is without all doubt my greatest Joy,
So I can TOY with troubles,
And give my soul to SONG
For I belong to GOD.
And as I walk the trackless course of time,
I have no fear somehow;
For the GREAT ALMIGHTY GOD is WITH ME-
WITH ME even NOW.

Till... We Meet Again, In The Resurrection!
JOHN 14: 1-3 1 Thessalonians 4: 13-18
- John 14: 1: Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God,
believe also in me. 2: In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not
so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3: And if I go and
prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that
where I am, there ye may be also.
- I Thessalonians 4: 13: But I would not have you to be ignorant,
brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others
which have no hope. 14: For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even
so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. 15: For this we say
unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the
coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 16: For the Lord
himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the
archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise
first: 17: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together
with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be
with the Lord.
