Praying for your family this morning as you remember Uncle Dale. A memory
I have of Dale is that whenever we were there for a meal, before he prayed he
always told us that he was glad we were there and he always complimented
Marzella on the food!  Wishing we could be there today with the family.

times of long ago in the  Northern Canada :) We will never forget your
