To the family of Mr.D. Epting: We would like to express our deepest sympathy at this time on the passing of your loved one. Although being a neighbor of Daniel's, we didn't know him well but he was a kind and friendly man we'd see and speak to from time to time picking up his mail or working in his garden. RIP Mr Epting, you'll be missed.

I wanted to reach out to you during this sad time to offer my condolences. While nothing will completely take away your grief, by meditating on God's promises found in the Bible, you can find real hope and the strength to keep going. I have found the scripture at Isaiah 25:8 to be especially comforting. Here it promises that God "will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces."

Mr. Epting was one of the first and best neighbors at the lake that I met. He would always come over if I was in the yard and we would have a pleasant conversation about lake life, fishing and hunting. I appreciate his kindness and friendship--I know he will be missed by all his friends and family. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Your father was a great man. He lived across the street from my grandparents. I have many many fond memories growing up talking with him. He was always kind and humble and will be remembered all my life as he was a great part of my childhood memories.

Mr. Daniel was such a sweet and humble man. When our WELCA ladies would go visit him in the summertime, he would be sitting under the shade trees. We were fortunate to have known Mr. Daniel and call him our friend. Anthony & Sebrena Matthews

I have known your dear father for years as a customer at my store, Epting Automotive. Although, our family history would have to go too far back to trace easily, I always felt like we were kin. He knew my father, who has been deceased for 36 years, & would reminisce with me about him. He always had a twinkle in his eyes & he was so kind, a joy to be around. I know you will miss him, as I will, too!
