    Dear Sherri,
    So sorry to read about your Dad. I enjoyed talking to him at the parades and at the Lincoln Agency when he came in.

    Dear Vivian and family, my heart goes out to you upon hearing of Dale's passing. He was such a kind, thoughtful sweetheart of a guy. My parents, George & Madlyne, and I, had the utmost respect for you Vivian, and Dale, as well. He had many friends who will miss him. May GOD Bless you and keep you close as he holds Dale in his loving arms. Love and Hugs!
