 This a shock, as I saw Dale at the Alumni, and also, Memorial Day Service, and thought he looked great. He will be missed, as he always had a smile on his face and a good word for everything, and everyone.
  You have my deepest sympathy, at this time of loss. Karen

So sorry for you loss.  It is never easy to loose a parent.  I have great memories of your parents at McKendree church. Grandson Kent often visited with Grandma and Grandpa.  It was a pleasure to talk with him when he visited.  Grandparents were so proud of him and all the grandchildren.  Dale was a good christian man and will be missed.  God give you strength at this difficult time.
