  1. David will be missed by the Mutschelknaus family. David was my first cousin and the Mutsch family was very close. David, his sister Mary Ellen and my sister Sandy made many memories together that will always be there for us, even in death. Sandy preceded David in death and I know they are having a grand reunion in heaven as they were close. One of my favorite memories was on Grandma Mutschs farm when us girls were up in a tree and the cows were butting their heads against the tree shaking it. We screamed for our lives and then David, and Bob Mutsch our heros came running up over the hill and saved us. To many good memories to list them all, but we had many. I will miss Dafvids great laugh and our get togethers when I visit Ohio. Nathan and Rachael you have our condolences and if their is anything I can do, please let me know.
