I was so saddened to read of your loss. In viewing the photos you have shared I saw a handsome confident young man, then an adoring husband, later a doting father and grandfather. Certainly shows a happy man. Through each photo you have given us a glimpse of a wonerful life. It is obvious he was the heart of a beautiful loving family. Sending prayers of comfort. Peace be with you.

Marjorie, Chris and family, I am so sorry to hear of your family's loss of your husband, father, and grandfather. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I will miss Mr. Hale and our short conversations over the fence while he was outside sometimes. Just talking with him would cheer me up on some of my gloomy days. I am sure he will be missed by a lot of people. God bless you during this very sad time.
