I Have Done Something

I looked at all the caged animals in the shelter…the cast-offs of human society.

I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread, sadness, and betrayal. And I was angry.

“God,” I said, “this is terrible! Why don’t you do something?”

God was silent for a moment, and then He spoke softly, “I have done something,” he replied. “I created you.”

David Rintz, 67, died peacefully in his sleep at home on Sunday, March 30, 2014. He was born December 16, 1946 in Lancaster, PA where he lived until he entered the United States Navy in November of 1964 serving his country proudly in the Vietnam conflict aboard various vessels including the USS Arlington until December 1970. After his discharge from military service he returned to Lancaster where he honed his skills in the carpentry trade. Dave moved to Fort Lauderdale in the 1980’s where he worked for local building contractors until he started his own carpentry business which later grew into a successful custom cabinet shop. Dave was passionate about riding motorcycles and rescuing abandoned animals. He is survived by a brother and sister, nieces and nephews in Lancaster and many friends in Fort Lauderdale as well as his special canine family, Cookie and Emma.
