To Sue and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Hale was quite a character ......and I enjoyed getting to know him, especially during our time together in the tree County player production of "The Odd Couple". I was the producer so we got to be together quite a bit! He did an excellent job of portraying Oscar! He will be deeply missed by all. We will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers.
