Dale, so sorry to hear about Darlene. Scott and I thought about you two quite often. Being a neighbor on Stratford Dr. was an enjoyable time for us. I plan on coming to the visitation on Wednesday. Scott will be working during that time but sends his condolences. He admired both of you very much.

I know that Darlene is with the Lord now and, like Kathy, is in a much better place. I also know the heartache you are feeling losing a spouse after such a long time together.

May God bless you and show his mercy and compassion at this most difficult time in your life.

Rest in peace Darlene.
