    My sincerest condolences to the Kempkes family in this time of immense grief. When we worked together at Bergan Mercy, I enjoyed learning of David & Donna’s adventures through her eyes. I have always loved and appreciated how much of a team they were. Wishing you the strength for the journey ahead.

    GREAT GUY, “KEMPS.” Our last names put us together in most of our classes, and I always looked forward to connecting. I’m sure those around you had the same bright spot in their lives. You left some wonderful memories.
